Pray for the children, women and men whose lives are impacted by trafficking and for an end to human trafficking
Offer a GAMC Human Trafficking Awareness Training in your Presbytery
Participate in the Red Hands Child Soldier Project
One destination for trafficked children is soldiering. Human Rights Watch reports that children under 18 are currently used as soldiers in at least 14 countries. UNICEF estimates that as many as 300,000 children are engaged in armed conflicts. This all takes place despite international laws that prohibit the use of children as soldiers. Learn more and take action.
Participate in the Campaign for Fair Food
Through the Campaign for Fair Food the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, farmworkers from south Florida, and consumers across the nation are insisting retail food corporations in grocery, fast-food and food service, work with farmworkers to end modern-day slavery in the fields and eliminate the poverty and lack of rights in which slavery flourishes. You can learn more on the Fair Food website and take action by sending postcards to the CEOs of Publix, Kroger and Ahold supermarkets as well as dropping off manager’s letters urging the companies to work with the CIW when you shop at local stores.
