Volunteers Making a Difference!

Modern-day Slavery (Awareness Project Online)

Religious groups team up to fight sex trafficking – http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/on-faith/religious-groups-team-up-to-fight-sex-trafficking/2012/09/26/fa2d2852-0817-11e2-9eea-333857f6a7bd_story.html?socialreader_check=0&denied=1

Law enforcement is increasingly teaming up with faith groups to combat sex trafficking around the country. Some are calling the faith-based push against human trafficking the newest “Christian abolitionist movement.”

The issue drew the attention of President Obama at former President Bill Clinton’s Clinton Global Initiative on Tuesday (Sept. 25), where Obama said the estimated 20 million victims of human trafficking would become a major focus of his Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

“Like that Good Samaritan on the road to Jericho, we can’t just pass by, indifferent,” Obama said. “We’ve got to be moved by compassion. We’ve got to bind up the wounds.”
