stop human trafficking

You can help in the fight against modern-day slavery. Freedom happens now!  Human trafficking is considered to be modern-day slavery, a multi-billion dollar criminal industry forcing men, women and children, to work in harsh and abusive conditions with little or no pay. And no matter where you live, chances are it’s happening nearby – even in the United States. In fact, 46 children a day are stolen in the United States and forced into sex slavery and/or labor situations. The Fallston United Methodist church is dedicated to promoting awareness and assisting survivors of trafficking through its work with local anti-human trafficking organizations such as The Samaritan Women.

 

The Blue Campaign is the unified voice for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) efforts to combat human trafficking. It provides information for victims.

The National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) is a national anti-trafficking hotline and resource center serving victims and survivors of human trafficking and the anti-trafficking community in the United States.

The Samaritan Women is a national Christian organization providing restorative care to survivors, and bringing about an end to domestic human trafficking through awareness, prevention, and advocacy.
