PROTECT: A Strategy to Prevent Human Trafficking in Our Communities
* Human trafficking is growing every year
* 600,000 - 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders each year.
* 80% are women
* 60% are minors
* The majority are enslaved in the sex trade
* You can help!
Developed by the Covenant’s Human Trafficking Task Force, PROTECT is a 40-page booklet developed as a part of the Covenant’s Break the Chains initiative. It is intended to empower local congregations to address the scourge of modern day slavery in their own communities.
The booklet also includes a listing of Key Contact Information that includes numbers and links to vital agencies, ministries and hotlines. PROTECT is made available partially through gifts to the Just Women project of Women Ministries.
