Jane White, Director of the Michigan Human trafficking Taskforce led a very informative discussion concerning the risks of exploitation faced by our young people at a community Forum on Sunday, April 24, 2016 First Baptist Church.
The event was FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
A Growing Business
Human trafficking is a growing business in our world. It is a lucrative business for those in control. It is a heart breaking, soul suffocating life for those who are being used and abused.
When we hear the statistics…
► 800,000 to 900,000 victims trafficked annually across international borders worldwide,
► 18,000 to 20,000 of those victims are trafficked into the U.S., we want to know, “How can we help stop this injustice?”
First, we need to get educated on the signs and indications of trafficking. Then we need to help raise community awareness. Be the voice. Spread the word.
Take time to Pray for human trafficking victims and the resolution of this tragic problem.
You can become a part of the solution!
Human Trafficking Awareness
It Could Save a Life!
With over 21 million people enslaved worldwide, human trafficking isn’t an issue we will conquer on our own. We need to come together and ask Christ to unite us in this fight. It will take the entire body of Christ praying to fight an evil this perverse.
Join with other believers and challenge slavery through prayer and education .
