Educating yourself about human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and abuse is the first step.  In doing so, you’ll discover God’s heart for the oppressed.  You’ll equip yourself with the tools to be the Lord’s “hands and feet.” As you share Hagar’s work, your impact will be multiplied many times over. Here’s how you can get started:

  • Start a Book Study with a small group to learn about human trafficking. Recommended books: ‘God in a Brothel’ by Daniel Walker; ‘Not for Sale’ by David Batstone;  ‘Half the Sky ‘by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl Wudunn.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
  • Host a Movie Night. We recommend these movies to learn more about human trafficking: Nefarious: Merchant of Souls; Slumdog Millionaire; Holly; Call & Response.
