12/2: Free the Captive, Fight the Trafficker Benefit

  • Seattle Community Church 4501 46th Avenue Northeast Seattle, WA, 98105 United States (map)

Join Justice Ventures International on International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, December 2, 2014. One event, multiple churches across the U.S. & Asia. The Pacific Northwest's location is being hosted at Seattle Community Church.

The event will feature stories of rescue and restoration, as well as practical ways for ordinary citizens to aid the victims and help bring perpetrators to justice.  To learn more about the problem of modern day slavery visit Walk Free.

Since 2006, JVI has worked to restore freedom and affect transformation in the lives of the oppressed in China and India.  Among its most recent successes are securing monetary compensation for survivors in human trafficking at the Atulya Home, providing legal support to vulnerable migrant groups in China, and rescuing bonded slaves, many of them children, from abusive working conditions in Delhi. Through JVI’s Shop for Freedom, women and children who were once trapped in the sex trade are now able to support themselves through honest, dignified work.  Free the Captive, Fight the Trafficker will benefit these ventures and many more, ensuring that thousands of lives will continue to be transformed by God’s love.

Come join the movement. Hear the stories and be moved to “let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.” (Amos 5:24)
