UNVEILED VISION:

To shine God’s light and love on our community by standing against the darkness of human trafficking.

Join us for an intimate look through survivors' eyes into the issues you may have SEEN. Learn more about the unSEEN and what you can do to keep moving forward in the fight against human trafficking. The symposium will focus on survivors of human trafficking--their stories, struggles, triumphs and how we as a community may better come alongside them.

How Can You Get Involved?

 

Education
The greatest—and easiest—way you can help put an end to human trafficking is by hosting an educational event to raise awareness about it. Maybe your coworkers, life group, or a neighborhood group or club would be interested. You don’t have to do any speaking; a trained educator from Unveiled will take care of that! Please contact Wendy Smith at 719-323-0333/ wendysmith57@gmail.com or Mary Bofill at maryb@cwccs.org.

CarePortal
Have you heard of CarePortal? In early May we launched an initiative through CarePortal to meet needs of trafficking victims. When you sign up to receive CarePortal emails (Careportal.org), you’ll receive brief messages that identify needs. If you can meet the need, just click on the tab. You will not be overwhelmed with requests. Click here for more information about CarePortal.

In the News
• In April U.S. law enforcement agencies seized the website Backpage.com, which had been used by people participating in human trafficking. The website’s chief executive, Carl Ferrer, pled guilty to charges of conspiracy and money laundering, according to “The Colorado Anti-Trafficking Insider.” 

• Governor Hickenlooper signed a bill into law April 12 that requires people seeking a Class A commercial driver’s license to be trained in recognizing, preventing, and reporting human trafficking. This is important because truck stops are a hot spot for trafficked individuals.

• On April 23 the Governor signed into law a bill that makes sex-trafficking minors a class 2 felony with a fine of $3,000.

 How to pray for Unveiled and anti-trafficking in general

Isaiah 9:2  "The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of darkness a light has dawned."

  •  That His love will compel believers to enter the fight against darkness and injustice. (Eph. 2:8-10, 3:16-21)
  • His love will bring healing spiritually, emotionally and physically for victims/survivors; the Holy Spirit will penetrate their hearts and guide them into Truth and Love. (Is 53:4-5, Mt 6:14, Rom 12:2)
  • Comfort for victims as they grieve their many losses, for example the loss of innocence, normal childhood/life, family, and trust. (Ps 94:19, Rom 15:13)
  • For all those involved in rescue and aftercare (e.g. law enforcement, safe home staff, counselors, legislators)

o   Protection over their hearts and minds as well as physical safety. (Rom 15:5, Gal 6:5, Ps 5:11)

o   Safe/smooth transition from trafficking to shelter

o   Peace in the safe home, make them a haven of healing

o   Financial resources

o   Wisdom (1 cor 1:25, James 1:5, 1 Cor 2:5)

o   Education, career training, jobs for survivors

o   Laws that are just

  • For pimps, traffickers and "johns" : prosecution and transformation (Rom 6:23, Rom 5:6, Prov. 14:12, Ez. 33:11, 1 Tim 2:1-7)
  • Break the bonds of pornography (Prov. 28:13, 1 Jn. 1:9, 1 Pet 2:11, Heb. 12:1)
  • More successes in prevention efforts
  • Set the captives free (Ps 72:12)
  • Wisdom and unity among all organizations and ministries involved in prevention, rescue and aftercare; no envy or self-ambition (1 Cor. 1:10)
  • For the vulnerable, especially the youth: that they would recognize vulnerability in themselves and their peers, they would call out and report concerns, and that there would be a great army to stand for righteousness and justice. (Ps 10:12, Ps 9:9)
