The Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry exists to raise awareness about the issue of human trafficking as well as fight against exploitation of people in the Chicagoland area through training, collaboration and mobilization.
There are several ways to engage with the Anti-Human Trafficking Ministry. Check the calendar below of upcoming events.
Educational Events: Learn from guest speakers, movie screenings, trainings and panel discussions, which focus on local human trafficking, so you can be a better advocate for victims of trafficking. See our calendar of upcoming events below.
Serving Events: Help meet the needs of our partner organizations, who serve those who have been victimized by trafficking. Several serving events are planned throughout the year, with opportunities such as assembling gift bags, packing Christmas gifts and collecting needed items for women recovering from the trauma of trafficking. See our calendar of upcoming events below.
Anti-Human Trafficking Section Community: Sections 101 and 102F at the 11:15 a.m. Sunday service focuses on anti-human trafficking activities and hosts monthly events focused on this issue. To learn more, contact Cheryl at [email protected].
New Name Call Center - Reach out to women advertised online for prostitution to offer resources, prayers and a listening ear. The South Barrington team meets on the last Wednesday of the month in the Care Center. If you're interested in serving with the call center, click HERE.
Serving with Partner Organizations - Both occasional (once a month with a one year commitment) and consistent serving opportunities (twice or more a month with a one year commitment) are available.
