What is Human Trafficking?

“Human trafficking is a world-wide trade.  It is defined as “the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of fraud or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or sex slavery.”  (Condoleezza Rice 2007)

For most the Western world, the world of slavery is part of the long forgotten nightmare of human history.  But the remarkable TRUTH is that Human Slavery is still taking place all over the world TODAY, including within the United States.  Today, more than 27 Million people remain ENSLAVED around the world.

This weekend, I attended a local church, Ressurection Life Churchin Grandville, Michigan.  Outside the entrance, a young woman was selling T-Shirts and other items to promote the First Annual 5K Walk-a-thon which the church is sponsoring to raise money and awareness for this cause on August 9, 2008.  The walk starts at 9:00 a.m.

It was while talking the young lady and looking at the materials that I realised that the Relentless Campaign was a ministry formed by a group of local young women dedicated to seeing sex trafficking abolished in the United States and around the world.  Because women are particularly vulnerable to becoming the victims of this henious crime, it is significant that these young women have chosen to take on this task with vigor and strong resolve.
