1– Join the conversation at EverydayAbolitionist.com. This is a growing site, made for everyday folks like you and me who want to find their role in re-abolishing slavery. On it you will find website, organization, book and other media recommendations that are all there to help. Join the conversation by leaving comments with ideas you have, things you’ve tried and organizations you’ve come across that are making a difference today. You can also look us up on Facebook where you can more freely contribute to the conversation.
2- Surf the Net. Google, Bing, or Yahoo search phrases like “anti-human trafficking,” “movies about modern slavery” and the like. See where the internet takes you and expand your knowledge. Then share what you learn on EverydayAbolitionist.com so others can check it out too. Someone once said, “If you devote 15 minutes a day to studying your topic of interest, in ten years you’ll be an expert.” At least I THINK someone reputable said that. Well at the very least, it will make you smarter.
3- Buy pretty jewelry made by girls who have been rescued from sex trafficking through Destiny Rescue. Visit DestinyRescue.org/us to buy online any time or host your own jewelry party. (More about this in the near future.)
4- Pray about it. Involve your faith and pray for:
- Rescue and Restoration for the victims
- Repentance of the perpetrators
- Resources for those who are intervening (governments, law enforcers and other advocates)
5- Keep your eyes open and ask questions. Human Trafficking happens in our own backyards so if you see something suspicious, ask questions like “How old are you?” or “Do you need help?” and report it to the police.
