Human trafficking is modern day slavery which affects 27 million people globally, and almost a third of those are children. Our last two presidents have pledged to dismantle, abolish, and restore the most basic rights to those who are enslaved. Proverbs 31 tells us to open our mouths for those who cannot speak for themselves and to ensure justice for those that are crushed. Join us as we welcome Cory Nickols from Destiny Rescue to share with us what their organization does, how children's lives are being changed, and what the church can do to help support and be an advocate for those who are enslaved in human trafficking.
"I call on every nation, every community, and every individual to fight human trafficking wherever it exists. Let us declare as one that slavery has no place in our world, and let us finally restore to all people the most basic rights of freedom, dignity, and justice." - President Barack Obama
"Human trafficking is a modern form of the oldest and most barbaric type of exploitation. It has no place in our world. This month we do not simply reflect on this appalling reality. We also pledge to do all in our power to end the horrific practice of human trafficking that plagues innocent victims around the world." - President Donald Trump
