Intercept Human Trafficking

intercept3002014

Today, January 11, is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. For many years United Methodist Women has been working to end human trafficking.

As in years past, today United Methodist Women’s website and social media will be dedicated to raising awareness of human trafficking.

Join us in our Intercept Human Trafficking campaign by distributing the posters and postcards. And don’t forget to send the bulletin insert to your church administrator or pastor for inclusion in worship for Super Bowl Sunday.

This year we are also encouraging people to join our “umbrella defense” to prevent trafficking and protect survivors. Send us photos of your United Methodist Women group holding umbrellas or post them to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #UMWUmbrella. You can also read the 2016 Reading Program book The White Umbrella: Walking with Survivors of Sex Trafficking by Mary Frances Bowley.

Together, we can end human trafficking.
