A sinister industry has crept across the globe and into the United States—the systematic buying, selling, and enslaving of human beings for sex and for illegal labor.
In the shadows, the dark world of human trafficking has lived and, tragically, grown.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that nearly 200,000 unique incidents of sexual exploitation of minors happen annually in the U.S. America at large remains unaware of the problem, as is the American faith community.
The grisly and perverse details of human trafficking make it a hard reality to stomach and confront, but this must change—and indeed, such change has already begun. More and more people of faith are coming together to protect life and innocence, however they are threatened.
Faith & Freedom has joined the fight to combat trafficking to include:
- Passed the “End Modern Slavery Initiative Act” as a part of the National Defense Authorization Act to allocate federal funds for a non-profit foundation dedicated to cutting human trafficking.
- Working with Congress to pass “The Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act” (SESTA) to amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to ensure that websites that facilitate sex trafficking can be held liable and victims can get justice.
