Leading up to MLK Jr. day, I wanted to educate myself on a social injustice that is occurring in our world today. When I was at Mission Connexion on Saturday evening, I attended a workshop on child sex trafficking. My eyes were opened to how big this issue is. This is not a detached issue that is occurring in isolated locations on the other side of the planet. It is a globalized criminal activity (2nd most profitable behind drug trafficking), and it's happening right here in America as well...on Craigslist nonetheless! (See: Craigslist "Call to Action" Campaign)
As if we needed further evidence of the depraved broken world that we live in.
LOVE146.org has a wealth of information to educate yourself with. I encourage you to watch the movie about how the organization got started. Then take a couple minutes to browse the "Get Educated". I was pleasantly surprised with the fact that the "Get Involved" section has a lot of really applicable, tangible, impactful, EASY ways to be a voice for the oppressed, especially the 146 ways to get involved.
