Human Trafficking is the second largest and fastest growing illegal enterprise. According to the 2016 Polaris report, California ranked #1 in the country with 19% of all sex trafficking cases. SoCal has 2/3rds of those cases.
According to many Anti-Human Trafficking task forces, law enforcement is 3% of the solution, non-profits are 7% and the community is 90%. The faith community is the most powerful aspect of the 90% .
Among churches and synagogues, there are mostly isolated efforts to fight human trafficking. When the faith community comes together to collaborate and learn from each other, we are empowered to reach our goals.
