Opportunities to Affect: Human Trafficking
This fellowship! magazine tells the story of CBF field personnel Aaron and Stephanie Glenn, who are advocates against human trafficking and provide care to the victims of modern-day slavery. California, where the Glenns work and live, is a hot spot for human trafficking, which is a $32 billion-a-year global industry. Other fellowship Baptists and congregations are involved in raising awareness about this major human rights issue.

A Place at the Table: The Crisis of 49 Million Hungry Americans and How to Solve It - The people who brought us “Food, Inc.” have created another book and film, “A Place at the Table.” This book and film not only talk about our broken food system but also talk about hunger in the US and how deeply this hurts children in our country.

Opportunities to Affect: Homelessness 
While homelessness has decreased in the United States in past years overall, the rate of family homelessness has increased. Cooperative Baptist Fellowship churches are responding to the homelessness crisis through Interfaith Hospitality Networks (IHNs) - groups of churches and volunteers that join together to offer shelter, meals and support for homeless families. CBF churches engaged in this caring ministry are featured in this month's issue of fellowship! magazine.
