Hey IBC!

I hope that those of you that were able to attend the Table Talk two Sundays ago and the session afterwards were able to learn and think critically about how to address the issues of sex trafficking as believers.

If you’re interested in doing some further research on your own, here are some good organizations and sites to look at:

· United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s Global Report on Trafficking in Persons (TIP Report)

· Shared Hope International

· Polaris Project

· A21 Campaign

Also, here are the numbers that were mentioned on Sunday to call if you witness a possible trafficking victim:

· 911 or local law enforcemen

· National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC) hotline at 1-800-THE-LOST

· National Human Trafficking Hotline: 1-877-3737-888 or text: befree

And here are some local organizations right here in our city:

· Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation (CAASE)

· New Name Ministries

· Naomi’s House

· Chicago’s Dream Center

· Traffick Free

· The Dreamcatcher Foundation

Thanks again for participating in this discussion and praying about what your role might be in addressing this issue!
