January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month
Human trafficking has been described as the “dark underbelly of globalization.” It is a $150-billion growth industry linked to economic, political and social forces that disproportionately affect poor women, children, and members of disadvantaged minority groups. The essence of human trafficking is in its force, fraud and/coercion of vulnerable people. Learn more about the economics and root causes of human trafficking in the January issue of our STOP Trafficking newsletter. Then, join us in prayer, asking for guidance and courage to stand up for our sisters and brothers who have been robbed of their dignity and wounded by this violent crime.
