The Quest to End Child Trafficking

Leaders across the faith spectrum — with the Salvation Army leading the way -- have been working to protect and assist victims and eradicate child trafficking. "Stopping the exploitation of our youth is a moral imperative that unites people across the faith spectrum, across the religion spectrum," says Valarie Kaur, director of Groundswell, a multifaith initiative that aims to inspire strategic action for justice.

I was moved and impressed by these women and as this cause has always been a passion of mine, I would like to know how individuals can become involved or perhaps a follow-up to provide some resources on starting these programs.

Check out different things like Traffick911.org esp. if in the DFW, TX area and You Tube search Human Trafficking for Testimonials.
Salvation Army & Polaris.org, Innocents @ Risk, Not for Sale Campaign.org. & Traffick Stop.com & Causes on FB are different groups too

This makes me sad and sick to see. May God help all those in need.

I also did not know that the Salvation Army does this kind of work. I just think of them as operating thrift stores to raise money for the disadvantaged. God bless them in this work of saving women, particularly the young from degradation. Thanks for telling this story.

Thank you, Odyssey, and thank you to the Salvation Army and Groundswell for working on this legislation. I always thought the Salvation Army was just the people with the red kettles collecting money at Christmas and running thrift stores. I think their spokswoman in this film is excellent and her idea about this becoming a grassroots effort makes sense. How can individual congregations get involved? Maybe you could do a follow-up on that or provide some resources on starting these programs.
