RESCUE – EDUCATE – CONNECT
Human Trafficking is a modern day slavery that takes many forms and has many different kinds of victims. Some of these victims are in our neighborhoods, going unnoticed; and some of these victims are far away enslaved for economic gain with our unknowning financial participation.
As Chistians we need to become aware, pray, and (when we can) protect and help these victims.
