Today is Shine a Light on Slavery Day and Florida Divisional employees showed their support against human trafficking by coming together and putting a Red X on their hands.
Each day The Salvation Army is working together to bring awareness to each community about human trafficking.
The Salvation Army is committed to fighting against human trafficking (for sexual and labor purposes) and forms of commercial sexual exploitation linked to sex trafficking. This commitment emerges from both The Salvation Army’s mission – to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination – and is rooted in the organization’s early history.
Join the Fight for Freedom and shine a light on slavery each day. Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery – a multi-billion-dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to over 40 million people around the world.
Did you know that Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery — a multi-billion-dollar criminal industry that denies freedom to millions of people around the world? No matter where you live, it’s happening nearby.
From the girl forced into prostitution at a truck stop, to the man discovered in a restaurant kitchen, stripped of his passport and held against his will. All trafficking victims share one essential experience: the loss of freedom.
The Salvation Army Anti-Trafficking initiatives work alongside local law enforcement, FBI, ICE, and numerous other community partners to identify, rescue, and restore victims of forced labor and sexual exploitation. We help both foreign and domestic victims of all ages and ethnicities through our nationwide case management network. Along with giving immediate refuge and relief for victims, we take a holistic approach to healing, helping each person move from a state of victimized enslavement to God-centered self-sufficiency.
Contact your local Salvation Army to inquire how you can help and join the fight.
Together we can end it.
