I just learned about human trafficking. Now, what do I do?

When you first learn about human trafficking you feel overwhelmed. You ask the questions: Should I donate? Should I start volunteering somewhere? What are the next steps after becoming aware of trafficking?

On top of feeling overwhelmed you may feel a full range of emotions; from brokenness to anger or rage. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. We filmed this episode to help you find your place in this movement against sexual exploitation.

In this episode, you’ll learn about our journey into the fight against trafficking, and we’ll give you some ideas about what your next steps are.

So if you are just now hearing about sex trafficking, here are some next steps.

In this episode, we’re talking about:

  • Why prayer is the most overlooked first step
  • Why you don’t need to start a ministry or nonprofit to make an impact
  • Why education is so important to fighting human trafficking
