Confronting Domestic Violence Abusers

Christians Against Trafficking

I am reaching out today regarding the work that Christians Against Trafficking is pursuing in and through our wonderful God. My purpose in emailing you is to ask if you would support the upcoming summit created with the objective to educate and inform people in Tallahassee with information about human trafficking. Christians Against Trafficking (CAT) (website: Christians Against Trafficking) is the new coalition formed around this horrific issue. Would you consider fully embracing the promotion of the Summit as your participation would greatly elevate the Summit and, far more importantly, the work of Christ, towards ending trafficking locally.

For your communications staff person, I have provided 2 Social Media-Styled Video’s and 1 Bulletin Insert (attached) along with a poster sized ad (attached). Please use these to distribute to your congregation via website or social media – if possible.

The video links are as follows:

I ask that you would consider promoting the summit beginning in early September using bulletin announcements, social media promotion, and in-person announcements. Please know any of our CAT team would be happy to visit as a guest and give an in-person shout out about this event.

The attached Bulletin Insert can be inserted into worship service bulletins. We also have pre-printed posters and bulletins of the color attachments available at no charge. Please let me know how many your congregation needs and I will be happy to drop off a supply of printed copies.

If you have any questions, please reach out to me. Thank you for your consideration of promoting this event.

Thank you!

COVID-19: Vulnerable youth need your support

Scared. Maybe sick. The few safe places around them closing up and shutting down. Already in vulnerable positions, COVID-19 and the subsequent shutdown have made runaway and homeless youth more vulnerable than ever to human traffickers, who can exploit their need for a safe place to stay. But so far, the COVID-19 relief legislation has left these young people behind. A bipartisan group of lawmakers says that has to change.

The urgent needs – and the reason why what has been done to date doesn’t meet them – are detailed in this letter from a bipartisan group of senators. They need your support.

Call your U.S. senators and tell them: Homeless and runaway youth need dedicated support. It’s time to pass a relief package that will keep these vulnerable young people safe and put them on a path to a better future. To get started, the Senate should pass the Emergency Family Stabilization Act (S.3923) to assist trafficking survivors and youth and families at risk for trafficking. Then follow-up your call by sending them a message.

Take Action Now

Data from the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline shows that being homeless or having unstable housing as a young person is a key risk factor for falling prey to traffickers. Some young people are forced by circumstances to trade sex for shelter or other necessities, or to sell sex in order to pay for a place to stay. Others are forced or duped into working in exploitative situations.

Contact your senators and tell them if they haven’t already, it’s time to join the effort to protect homeless and runaway youth from human trafficking.

In Solidarity,
