Human trafficking is a $150 billion dollar industry, according to the World Labor Organization. Shared Hope has said that at least 100,000 children in the United States are exploited every year through pornography or prostitution. On notforsale.org, it says there are an estimated 27 million human beings enslaved in the world today.
Rock Point Church will hold a women’s event to raise awareness about the reality of human trafficking around the world and in the United States. The mission of the event is to “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute” (Proverbs 31:8). On June 6 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., there will be a two-session conference with featured speakers, music and a light brunch provided at 10 a.m. During the break, there will be representatives from local ministries and programs that serve hurting and vulnerable men, women and children within our own community.
