“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36 (NIV)
She Is Safe (SIS) is a Freedom Partner with Passion 2013 in Atlanta. Over 60,000 college-age students gathered for a four-day conference to worship Jesus and confront an issue affecting millions of people worldwide: modern slavery.
Passion 2013 launched the End It Movement, an initiative of Passion City Church to raise awareness across the U.S. that there are more slaves in our world today than at any other time in history, and there are some great organizations addressing some part of this immense puzzle. We are calling on everyone to do something in this fight against evil.
The SIS part of the puzzle, of course, is to focus on women and girls who are enslaved or at extreme risk of abuse and exploitation. Since, according to the United Nations, 98% of all sex slaves are female, our ministry has a huge piece of the puzzle on our hearts and in our strategies.
According to the End It Movement website,
- 27 million people are enslaved worldwide
- 161 countries are affected by human trafficking
- 80% of human trafficking victims are women and girls
Passion 2013 raised most of the 3.5 million dollars for the End It Movement and Freedom Partners from students at the conference. We celebrate their generosity and gratefully receive part of the funds for our anti-trafficking work. We are blessed to participate with Passion 2013 and the End It Movement and we look forward to working together to combat human trafficking.
