The Scottish Churches Anti-Human Trafficking Group is campaigning for the purchase of sex to be criminalised. Having sent a letter to the FM Nicola Sturgeon, signed by many of the church leaders of Scotland, they encourage individuals and local church groups to write to their MSPs about this issue. A set of guidelines has been prepared, along with a sample letter, and some text for inclusion in a newsletter or magazine.
