National Faith Coalition Against Human Trafficking-
How to Build a Successful Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry
The purpose of the national faith coalition is to connect the faith community and provide an opportunity for people in the faith community to teach each other how they can build their efforts in the fight against human trafficking. .For our next meeting, we will address the fact that some anti-human trafficking ministries last for over a decade, others collapse in less than 2 years. At this meeting, panelists from three churches who have anti-human trafficking ministries for close to a decade or more will share what dynamics need to be present to have a vital, long term ministry that is making a difference in the fight against human trafficking. Panel members will also share some of the activities they are doing that they are inspired about. Please join us for this all important meeting!
National Black Faith Coalition Against Human Trafficking- The Impact of Decriminalizing Prostitution on the Black Community
Several U.S. States have bills that are being discussed to decriminalize prostitution. Those in the anti-human trafficking community are against this because when prostitution is decriminalized, sex buying explodes creating a vacuum that the human traffickers fill by finding more victims. What about just decriminalizing prostitution for the prostituted person only?. At our next event, all dynamics of this issue will be looked at from the perspective of the black Christian community. This is a very important topic for the black community, so please do join us on January 29th.

Often too many efforts in the faith community wind up being isolated efforts. For churches that want to start something, they would love to connect with active churches. However they don't know who they are. In Southern California, we have connected the faith community in seven counties so they can collaborate and mentor each other. Events and trainings are posted so people know where they can become educated on this issue.. You can find out more at this site and use it as a model: https://socalfaithcoalitionsagainsthumantrafficking.org/

When we went out and spoke to over 100,000 people, we were asked hundreds of questions. Some we knew the answer to, some we didn't. So we went out and interviewed community leaders, non-profits, law enforcement and many others to find the best answers. The book "How You Can Fight Human Trafficking, Over 100 Ways to Make a Difference" was written for anyone who feels called to join the fight against human trafficking and has been a tremendous resource for task forces and speakers as they are always asked "What can I do?!" Amazon lets us offer the e-book at no cost four times a year. Those dates are the 15th to the 19th in the months of January, April, July and October. You can find the book here.
