President Obama’s Faith Council Focuses On Human Trafficking

In Awareness, Human Trafficking on August 17, 2012 at 2:43 pm

The President’s Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships has decided to tackle the issue of human trafficking this year after consulting with, among other groups, International Justice Mission and World Relief.

The council, a group of “diverse religious and nonprofit leaders” including National Association of Evangelicals president Leith Anderson and Lynn Hybels of Willow Creek Community Church, will produce “a formal report of recommendations” to President Barack Obama and his administration.

The group has agreed to focus their report on four areas:

1. Victim Services
2. Victim Identification and Reporting
3. Supply Chain and Demand issues
4. Public Awareness and Education
