The Justice Project: Addressing Human Trafficking
The EZRA Project partnered with Compassion Mercy and Justice Ministry to launch an educational initiative that educates churches about the devastation of sex trafficking in the African American community and advocates for a response to this atrocity.
- To help churches act out the biblical and theological mandates for justice by help oppressed, enslaved, and endangered persons who victimized by sex trafficking.
- To help churches coordinate a response to sex trafficking in their communities, cities, and towns.
- To assist organizations who are on the frontlines of the rescue of victims and the restoration of survivors.
- To provide avenues of action for individuals and small groups of committed Christian lay persons and ministers.
The five workshops conducted by The EZRA Project and CMJ Ministry between 2018 and 2019 addressed over 500 people in multiple churches around the Chicago area as well as nationally including a session in Juneau, Alaska. The EZRA Project also conducted a national survey among pastors and clergy to determine the awareness of this issue among church leaders.
