Get Equipped To Win the Battle

We believe we can win the battle against human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. It’s a bold statement. Some may think it's absurdly unrealistic, but is it really so hard to believe?

As the modern abolition movement has gained incredible momentum over the past decade, abolitionists have come face to face with the striking enormity of this injustice. Rather than becoming discouraged in a spirit of defeatism, we must regather and recast a vision for victory.

We’ve invited an audacious collection of revolutionary leaders in the abolition movement who are ready to share their stories of breakthrough and strategies for victory. Come join a thousand passionate abolitionists as we encounter the Lord’s heart for justice and gain practical equipping to win the battle against commercial sexual exploitation.

God Almighty has set before me two great objects: the suppression of the slave trade and the reformation of morals... — William Wilberforce
