Modern day slavery, forced into prostitution, forced to do hard work for little or no pay and no safety or security, no understanding of the places where they are trafficked, language barriers, fear, misery, hunger, violence, abuse,danger, threats to families. NO WAY TO SAFETY.
These are just a few of the issues that torment people trafficked throughout the world, including the US, including Arizona, including Pima County, including Tucson…perhaps in your neighborhood.
Come, as people of faith, come as people concerned, come as atheists and agnostics, come because you want to understand how you can alleviate the suffering and harm.
This program won’t be just devoted to learning about human trafficking, but will also open conversation to the many ways we, as individuals or as faith communities, can help.
Please join us.
