Yesterday was the official Human Trafficking Awareness Day, but all month long organizations and individuals will continue to emphasize this growing, evil enterprise.
I encourage you to connect with and support ministries that are fighting to end this problem locally and internationally, such as Woman's Missionary Union and the International Justice Mission. These are just two; there are many others.
In my attempt to help raise awareness, I want to share some articles I wrote for The Alabama Baptist newspaper last year. I hope they will be helpful to you, and I encourage you to share this with others or find other ways to raise awareness so that we can help bring this injustice and evil to an end.
