Gary Haugen, President and CEO of IJMwrote these two books and they have really impacted and inspired me. The Good News About Injustice is the one I most what to highlight because this is the book that opened my eyes to the issue of human trafficking. The reason behind its title is that Haugen shows both the dark terrible truth of the injustice in our world as well as the bright amazing hope that it can be (will be) overturned with justice and mercy. Just Courage is a shorter book which encourages people to fulfill their role as ministers of justice. A very empowering read.
This is a fictional book inspired by the true stories of girls all over the world. A 13 year old girl from an impoverished family in the hills of Nepal thinks she is going to the city to work as a maid and send money home to her mom. The reality is, she was sold to a brothel in India.
This book was written for teens and is a touching story that reveals much about the secret world of sex trafficking.
