National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month 

Thirty-four. That’s the number of human trafficking-related arrests Jacksonville police made last year, Sheriff Mike Williams said Tuesday in recognizing January as National Slavery and Human Sex trafficking Awareness Month.

We remember and pray for victims of sex trafficking, involuntary servitude, debt bondage and forced labor in our nation and around the world, and we ask God’s guidance in caring for victims and actively working to end this abuse, injustice and oppression.
