Recognizing the Signs

Recognizing the Signs

Earlier this year, the A21 organization (Based out of the US) launched their campaign “Can You See Me?” with videos depicting various forms of exploitation and trafficking. Their slogan “Modern Day Slavery Exists” If you suspect it, report it (along with a 1-800-THE-LOST phone line for The National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children). Media can grab our attention and stir up emotion, but what is most important is that we recognize the signs and take action.

Actions Speak Louder- Act Now Canada!

Actions Speak Louder- Act Now Canada!

"Canada's anthem declaring the ‘true north, strong and free’, may proclaim equality for all, but we are far from that desired vision. God created us to live in freedom, unity and equality."

The question is: do we live by that vision in our own lives, families and communities?

Sexual Exploitation and Trafficking is a reality we cannot deny any longer as a nation. This is pure evil that has been tolerated or ignored and this simply cannot be a social justice issue we wish away. The "hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil" adage doesn't hold any weight when it comes to creating sustainable change, but rather it perpetuates the abuses. Rather, we must embrace the truth that actions speak louder than words. We encourage all Canadians to do their part to end human trafficking! 

This June, Help Us Change the Story

This June, Help Us Change the Story

Stories. Every person, community and culture has one. And this June, we invite you to help us change the stories of the vulnerable and exploited in our nation.

We know that, for far too many individuals around the world, sexual exploitation is a thread woven through their stories. We also know that sex trafficking is an inexcusable part of Canada’s story. Sex trafficking happens here, every day and in nearly every city.
