Human Trafficking is an ever increasing human rights issue. Churches In Action recognizes the need to address this issue and is working with various agencies to bring the information to and educate the faith community leaders.
We are actively working with The SoCal Faith Coalition against Human Trafficking as we hold a series of conferences to educate what Human Trafficking looks like, how to speak to it, and various other conferences designed to grow faith communities to a place where we as a coalition can and do truly significantly reduce Human trafficking to almost non-existent.
At Churches In Action, we have been actively working with Law Enforcement and other organizations to train and help people to be aware of, recognize the signs, and know who to contact and how.
Human Trafficking now exceeds drugs as a major money maker. Human Trafficking involves boys, girls, men, and women. It may be as a sex worker, or other forms of forced employment. It may be as a forced partner.
Human Trafficking involves of 45 million people and generates Billions and Billions of dollars in revenue for those who are doing the trafficking. This is a blight on society and destroys millions and millions of lives.
We must all work together to stop Human Trafficking
Anti-Human Trafficking 101
Signs of physical abuse, sudden unexplained absences, noticeable mental stress, and more signals, when grouped together, may be an indication of human trafficking. Often going unnoticed, trafficking annually victimizes as many as 300,000 American children, with an average age of between just 11 to 14 years old.
In collaboration with the SoCal Faith Coalition, Churches in Action conducts a series of anti-human trafficking 101 conferences to help the community recognize the signs, identify who to talk to, and know what to do in the case of possible trafficking.
Stay up to date on our upcoming conferences and let’s work together to keep our youth safe.
2020 Conference Recap

Churches in Action, the SoCal Faith Coalition, the Black Faith Coalition Against Human Trafficking, and many more collaborative partners gathered to learn what is working against human trafficking and inspiring stories from Southern California’s most active faith communities involved in the fight.
2019 Symposium Recap
Despite being the second most vulnerable group to human trafficking after African Americans, many Latino families still find it an uncomfortable issue to openly discuss. This is why Churches in Action held a Spanish-speaking symposium last October 2019, to promote more awareness about this growing problem so that we can all work together to protect our children.
