National Black Faith Coalition Against Human Trafficking: Churches Bringing Jesus to the Pimp
Our Lived Experience Topic Experts are Bishop Gale Oliver and Armand King. Bishop Oliver began his journey in ministering to pimps when his niece was sex trafficked. He met with her pimp to convince him to let her go and then talked to him about Jesus. Armand King is an inspiring national leader in the fight against human trafficking. He has a powerful program to work with youth to make sure they never want to become pimps or prostitutes. What makes Armand's program unique is that he can speak from personal experience as to why that path is so destructive and shows youth another way. At this meeting, Bishop Oliver and Armand King will share the best way to approach pimps and how to work with them. Pimps DO want to get "out of the life" because it is a dark life, but they don't understand the path to get out. While there are many, many efforts to reach out to victims of sex trafficking and many efforts for prevention, there is next to nothing to support pimps. They need Jesus. Churches will learn how they can be a real resource to pimps which will reduce sex trafficking.
The National Hispanic Faith Coalition Against Human Trafficking
At our first event, we will be addressing the role of the Hispanic Church in the Fight Against Human Trafficking. We will begin with a 101 and then have a panel discussion regarding the role of the Hispanic Church in the fight against human trafficking. Please see our Education Resource tab for resources in Spanish.
These workgroups are virtual discussion groups, so people with common interests can come together to share what is working and for people new to the issue, they can be mentored by experienced leaders. Please use the contact form below to be notified regarding the work group you would like to be part of.

Effective Advocacy at the Local Government Level
When our team 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.
Many, many churches feel called to take action to fight human trafficking, but it is not clear what can be done that the church is uniquely qualified to do. This book provides a step by step guide on how to take effective action. As a result of reading this book, You will be left energized and inspired.!
