Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world, with over $32 Billion a year in revenue. With human trafficking, there are more slaves today than any other point in history, with between 27-30 million people enslaved against their will. The average age of victims of human trafficking is 13 years old. This isn’t a problem far away: Charlotte ranks 8th in the nation for the trafficking of minors, and North Carolina ranks in the top ten for human trafficking nationally.
SouthPark Church wants to end Human Trafficking here in Charlotte, so we’ve partnered with Justice Ministries and with Dahlia Grove to support the fight against human trafficking and support the survivors of human trafficking in beginning a new life. Would you consider joining the fight to end human trafficking?
Justice Ministries is committed to combating sex trafficking and sexual exploitation of women, with a focus on rescue and housing. Their goal is to locate victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation, help them get out of their situation and into a safe place, facilitate an environment conducive to healing, and assist them in their transition to independence. They serve victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation through outreach, emergency services and transitional care.
Due to the nature of this dangerous industry, Justice Ministries has asked SouthPark Church to help primarily as a financial supporter. SouthPark responds as needs arise, such as providing household items, gifts, and any other way we can be of assistance. Financial gifts to Justice Ministries are always welcome and needed.
Fundraising is a great way to get to know Justice Ministries and the work they do. There is always an opportunity to further their fundraising efforts or they would love to speak at any event you have organized or wish to organize.
