Don't look away, take a second look! January 11th is Human Trafficking Awareness Day - #HumanTraffickingDay

The signs are everywhere, sometimes, you just have to take a second look. Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and it happens today in our own communities. It is not only a thing that is happening far away, but it is happening shockingly close by. 

January 11th is Human Trafficking Awareness Day. We want to encourage everyone to "Take a Second Look", because your second look could be 'their' second chance. 

Here is a short video by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aG1Jd3PF-JU):

As we were discussing the topic of Human Trafficking in the team, one of the team members recalled a song that was re-released a few weeks ago. A song called "Freedom" by Jesus Culture on their album Cafe Sessions (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKxeZsZvp7E). Chris linked the song to the topic when he shared that this song describes the Freedom that we, as a team, wish everyone is able to enjoy. He emphasized that if we do nothing, nothing changes. Victims of Human Trafficking do not have the freedom we (as Christians) seek for our own lives and wish to share with others. We just cannot look away!


You can help play a role in ending human trafficking by learning key indicators of the crime, raising awareness of human trafficking within your family, community, or industry, and reporting suspected trafficking incidents. Individuals living in certain areas, working in particular industries, or with specific audiences may be more likely to observe human trafficking by nature of their day-to-day job duties or surroundings. 

Please don't look away! You can help by taking a second look and sharing suspected human trafficking with your local authorities.
