This is the year we commemorate the 150th anniversary of America's
constitutional affirmation of freedom - the 13th Amendment. Frederick
Douglass Family Initiatives (FDFI) wants to help shine a light on modern
forms of slavery.
Faith + Community is a national initiative that will provide training
and education for faith leaders and their constituents as we confront
the specter of sex trafficking and labor exploitation together. Faith
leaders are uniquely positioned to disseminate truth and knowledge about
human trafficking that can protect youth and effect change. This is an
interfaith event. Leaders of all faiths from the state of Georgia and
individuals determined to end human trafficking are encouraged to join
A new Georgia State Faith Protocol for responding to incidents of
human trafficking will be presented. Please dress as you would for a day
of worship. Entrance to the event is free. Confirmed Speakers:
