Help End Slavery Now!

We are all familiar of the topic of slavery from our history classes, but what most of the World is unaware of is that the fight for freedom is far from over.  Slavery has taken on a ugly form that victimizes more people now than at any point in human history. 

The statistics are heart wrenching...

  • 27 million people are enslaved today.
  • Human trafficking happens in 161 countries, and sadly in our own.
  • 80% of the victims are women, sadly many of them are children.
  • Every 30 seconds there is another victim of human trafficking.

This is something that you know weighs heavy on the heart of God!  It is something that many artists like Chris Tomlin, Natalie Grant, Tenth Avenue North, Third Day, The Museum and Kristian Stanfil are taking on through partnerships with abolition groups like Not For Sale, The International Justice Mission, Abolition International, The End It Movement and The A 21 Campaign. 

This should be something that each of us gives voice to, God gave you a voice, use it!  Share what's going on with your family, your friends, your pastor... the World! People need to know what's going on. In Matthew 25, Jesus calls us to care for "the least of these", spreading the word about the fight against human trafficking can help bring FREEDOM to those held captive, and isn't that why Jesus came, to set the captive FREE!  Thanks for continuing to pray for the millions who are victimized by human trafficking and for those fighting this problem on the front lines.

Your voice makes a difference, the more people that know about what is going on, the more we can keep slavery from lurking in the shadows.  Let's set the captives FREE!
