A campaign, Exposed2013, has been launched to take a stand against institutional corruption. Exposed is a group of Christian organisations, which aims to challenge the global church, businesses and governments to highlight the effects of corruption on the world’s poor.
Campaign chairman Rev. Joel Edwards described it as ‘an opportunity for the church to do what we are called to do: to raise our voice in holy outrage and provide practical offerings of hope’.
The launch marked the start of a 12-month campaign of awareness-raising and action. Global partners include the Bible Society, Salvation Army and World Evangelical Alliance. The campaign has also been working with the United Nations Millennium Campaign and Tax Justice Network.
At the end of the year, a global vigil against corruption will take place, and a global call against corruption will be signed.
