John 8:32 – “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
In 2015, we commemorated the 150th anniversary of the 13th Amendment. Frederick Douglass Family Initiatives (FDFI) is shining a light on the modern forms of slavery that still exist. Hundreds of secondary schools and school districts are currently participating in our Globalize 13 Education Initiative around the country. FDFI now brings its human trafficking education program to faith institutions across the United States through our new G13 Faith + Community initiative.
Sex trafficking and labor exploitation are corrosive influences in communities everywhere. Understanding the problem permits us to address it more successfully. We are confident that Leaders of every faith are uniquely positioned to effect change and protect our young people.
The Faith + Community project is an opportunity for faith leaders to bring more understanding to both their congregations and to their communities about the issue of human trafficking. It’s an interfaith project that will include human trafficking training for faith leaders, a faith framed curriculum for members of the congregation and suggestions for community outreach and awareness projects that can be implemented with the help of local anti-trafficking stakeholders.
Faith + Community is a national initiative that will provide training and education for faith leaders and their constituents as we confront the specter of sex trafficking and labor exploitation together. Leaders of all faiths and those individuals of faith determined to end human trafficking are encouraged to join us.
