Post Freedom Sunday

So your corps has met together to observe Freedom Sunday, now what? How do you continue to support and advocate for victims of human trafficking? We want to empower YOU to be influences of change in your local community. Below are some resources Just Salvos thought would be appropriate to share within your Corps and local community. Lets tap into the passion experienced during Freedom Sunday and continue to change the world for those who are victims of human trafficking.


1. Hold Bible Studies on social justice or human trafficking.
Download Just Salvos bible study here
Download Stop The Traffik bible studies here


2. For Women’s Ministries or Youth Ministries: Host a Fair Trade Fondue party.

3. Download Ethical Shopping Guide Apps (available through the App Store).

4. Purchase Just Gifts OR hold a fundraiser at your corps and select a project to support. Contact Just Salvos for more information.

5. Continue to pray! Hold prayer meetings - insert prayer stations into your meetings or bible studies.
 
6. Sponsor a child. When you sponsor a child you provide them with an education and begin the process of removing them from poverty, drastically reducing their chances of being trafficked. Visit  http://www.salvationarmy.org.au/get-involved/sponsor-a-child/ for more informaiton. 

7. Continue to be informed. Spend 10 minutes a day reading up on Human Trafficking. Just Salvos recommends you visit the following websites:
www.stopthetraffik.org
 http://www.notforsalecampaign.org/
http://www.unodc.org/unodc/en/human-trafficking/what-is-human-trafficking.html 


8. Spread the word! Tell your friends, family, work colleagues about the issue of Human Trafficking.      


Or, if you can think of other ways to get involved and advocate for victims of human trafficking, email us! We would love to hear from you.
