In honor of today being National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, I would encourage you to engage with this issue in some way.
Here are a few ideas:
- Pick up a copy of one of the following books (or find one on Amazon.com that interests you- there are many!) and start reading-
- Girls Like Us by Rachel Lloyd
- Not For Sale: The Return of the Global Slave Trade--and How We Can Fight it by David Batstone
- God in a Brothel: An Undercover Journey into Sex Trafficking and Rescue by Daniel Walker
- Consider raising or donating funds to an organization that works to rescue people from slavery- International Justice Mission, Not for Sale, World Relief, GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services)... to name a few.
- Watch the documentary Very Young Girls, which documents the buying and selling of young girls. I have not seen this, but can only imagine how powerful and tough it would be to watch.
- If you live locally in Raleigh or the surrounding areas, you can sign up to attend a workshop to learn more about the trafficking industry- with the Salvation Army of Wake County on January 20th &21st. For more information, follow this link.
- Another local opportunity happening March 24- World Relief Stop Human Trafficking Walk/Run. This will be happening in Durham- for more info, follow this link (scroll down and you'll see it!).
