Let’s join together and make slavery a thingof the past once and for all
•Locally, we propose a three-step attack towards the eradication of poverty and subsequently the abolition of human trafficking. 1. AWARENESS: an educational campaign spreading information through pamphlets, speeches, films, word of mouth, and online2. ACTION: service projects and fundraising events to get the local community involved 3. AID: fundraising and donation efforts to support international charities and organizations working towards the same thing
YOU make the difference between can slavery and freedom for someone in your community
Believe we don’t know enough“Sex-industry” is well-funded to get out its message Sounds like a “prude” Denial Not ready for what might happen
System will continue to provide the language, attitude, belief, and justification for its existence and self-perpetuation Miss an opportunity to proclaim a message of redemption and transformationWhat if we don’t speak?People will suffer in silence, not understanding the oppression that has gripped themLives of our most vulnerable will continue to be shaped by a culture of exploitation
We are called to stand in the grace of God,believing that it is a missional priority to proclaim release to the captives of the system of exploitation.
