“Speak out for those who cannot speak, for the rights of all the destitute. Speak out, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
— Proverbs 31:8-9
The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking (CAST) is an organization that works exclusively with survivors of human trafficking identified in the United States. Victims of human trafficking in the United States can be found in sweatshops, among agricultural workers, in homes as domestic slaves, and in all areas of the adult “entertainment” industry, including prostitution. It is extremely disheartening that slavery is still in existence 150 years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation by President Lincoln. Please pray for the CAST legal team and social services team, including CBF field personnel Aaron and Stephanie Glenn, as they work face-to-face with survivors of human trafficking. It is often overwhelming and emotionally draining. Also, pray for the involvement of churches as the Glenns promote models of recovery for survivors. To learn more, visit www.CASTLA.org.
