#RefuseToDoNothing: So You Want to be an Activist?

“Why do we know more about Paris Hilton than we know about slavery (40)?” Today, we would ask, “Why do we know more about Beyonce or Miley Cyrus than we know about slavery?” “Why is the media more focused on which celebrity is in what rehab center or wearing which fashion designer to an awards show (40)?” When there is indeed “shows” going on in our communities but we are not opening our eyes to pay attention. The shows in which I am speaking are the buying and selling of children, women, and men for entertainment or sexual pleasure and work. If you are a resident of Washington DC or the following states, people in your community are most susceptible to human trafficking:

Humble Servants Stand for the Vulnerable and Pray

Humble Servants are people who look beyond themselves to see the needs of others. I have often shared my appreciation and support of the International Justice Mission (IJM). Most recently, several of you supported IJM by answering my call to participate in the 100 Postcard Challenge to end modern-day slavery. We signed 110 postcards to encourage congress to pass the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act. And they did pass it! Read more about the details in this bill and how the U.S. will fight human trafficking.

Today, I am simply asking for your prayers. Next week (June 10-11), I will be joining advocates from 39 states to participate in the International Justice Mission Advocacy Summit. Specifically, we will be raising our voices to end modern-day slavery and lobbying congress members on Tuesday.

I firmly believe when we see man-made injustices in the world, it is a physical reality of the war that is taking place in the spiritual realm. Therefore, I consider it a serious act of spiritual warfare when I ask you to pray for us. You can stand for the vulnerable right where you are by committing to partner in prayer over the next several days as we prepare for this important task.

Words of Wisdom:

“Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act (Prov 3:27).”

Will you stand?

Blessings to you, Natasha
