Women, men and children are being funneled into the human trafficking trap. To redeem their lives, The Church is going to have to rise up as a unified and connected Body. Fragmented efforts are not enough.

May they be made completely one,
so the world may know You have sent Me
and have loved them as You have loved Me.

John 17:23

What Can I Do?

Many people feel passionate about fighting human trafficking, but don’t know where to start. With so much information and so many organizations out there, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. What we need is a simple, yet effective way to take the next step forward. That’s why the Alliance has created the GoBox: a small but powerful anti-trafficking toolkit.  Small steps of obedience often propel us into the bigger purposes of God.  Watch this short video to learn how The GoBox will guide you through a process of educating, equipping and engagement so that you  – and your church – can discover your God-given role in the anti-trafficking movement!

Why We Exist

Why do we need an alliance of churches to fight human trafficking?  With so many anti-trafficking organizations already in existence, what is the Church’s role in this issue? It’s easy to feel powerless and discouraged in the face of such evil. But we serve an awesome God who uses His people to bring hope and redemption to the world.  Watch this video to listen to the Alliance Co-Founder and Executive Director, Leigh Kohler, talk about the heart behind the Alliance and why it was formed. Learn about why it is so crucial for The Church to stand shoulder to shoulder and unite to bring about an end to human trafficking.

The Root of the Issue

If we want to see human trafficking end, we have to address the root of the issue – the demand. City of Defenders is a holistic strategy of the Alliance created to address the issue of demand for human trafficking in and through the Church. Rather than being known as a marketplace for traffickers, we want to see our city become a place where every woman, man, and child is defended and treated with dignity and respect. In an age where nearly everyone knows a woman who has said #metoo, we need a culture change and we need the church to be leading that change. Watch this video to learn more about the various initiatives that make up the City of Defenders strategy.

“You are an integral part of our anti-trafficking efforts. The City of Houston alone cannot stop human trafficking – this is an issue that has to be addressed at home and in places of worship, both of which are beyond the City’s reach….. I encourage you to continue in your faith to speak up for what is right and engage in efforts with the knowledge that you are joined by countless others in Houston, across the U.S. and the world over who are committed to ending modern-day slavery.”

Minal Davis, Special Advisor to the Mayor on Human Trafficking
