Equip your church to fight human trafficking in your community. Human trafficking is not just a third world issue; it is rampant in the U.S. and touches every socioeconomic, racial, and ethnic group. The average age of a girl lured into the sex trade is 13 years old; once she enters, her average life expectancy is only 7 more years due to addiction, violence, and disease.
Would you like to learn more about the issue and see how your church or group could be involved in your community? Join us for a week of training and hands-on experience in Atlanta, a city dubbed as the model of how churches, service agencies, and non-profits are working together to bring healing and restoration to those caught in the horrors of sex trafficking.
Participants will be involved in street outreach, prayer drives, service projects, training, and ministry at the safe houses where those rescued are prepared for a new life. There will also be speakers from different aspects of anti-trafficking work sharing about their unique approaches and how they got started in the fight against trafficking. We hope that you will leave with a keener awareness of the issues around you and how you and your church can become active participants in stamping out this injustice.
