a HUGE opportunity for you to ACT!

Not For Sale and Causes.com have teamed up to launch a beverage company to fight modern slavery!

In order to make this happen, they need your help and fast. In the next 2 1/2 weeks, they need YOU to donate $35 to help fight slavery in the Peruvian Amazon. You’ll receive 4 of the first bottles of REBBL (Roots Extracts Berries Bark and Leaves) that are made by these 2,000 families. You’ll help them get out of poverty and establish a living for themselves and their community.

"It is commonly thought in secular society that the Bible is one of the greatest hindrances to doing justice. Isn’t it full of regressive views? Didn’t it condone slavery? Why would we look to the Bible for guidance on how to have a more just society? But Timothy Keller, pastor of New York City’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church, challenges these preconceived beliefs and presents the Bible as a fundamental source for promoting justice and compassion for those in need. In Generous Justice, he explores a life of justice empowered by an experience of grace: a generous, gracious justice.  This book offers readers a new understanding of modern justice and human rights that will resonate with both the faithful and the skeptical.”

Nearly 150 years ago, President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation – but slavery endures here in the U.S. and around the world. Experts estimate there are 27 million people held in slavery today.
It’s time to take a stand, and say to traffickers and slave-owners around the world: This ends with us. Sign the letter to President Obama and let your signature stand for 1000 people who need freedom.

Walk to End Human Trafficking - Jan 11, 2012
Greetings!

Next Wednesday, January 11th, is both National and Oregon Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

We are bringing awareness to this overwhelming darkness in Portland on 

January 11, from 7:00 to 7:30 pm as we walk by candlelight through the Park Blocks between SW Hall and Montgomery 

click here for the flyer.

 

John 1:5 

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it."  

You may not know that the average age of a girl being sex-trafficked is 12 yrs old.  Please consider giving 30 mins of your time to shine a light in the darkness for these children! 


We will have around 150 candles so if you are assembling a large group, please feel free to bring some.  If not, we’ll make what we have work by sharing.  Spread the word…for more information on HT in Portland or how you can get involved, visit 
 www.compassionconnect.com/abolitionnow  or www.occv.org/human-trafficking

I would like to thank Darlene Domenigoni and other dedicated volunteers from Good Shepherd Church, and Amy at Weiden and Kennedy for donating their time and efforts to make sure that vulnerable children are not forgotten.

Additionally, the Northwest Conference Against Trafficking (and film festival!) is being held on January 13 & 14 at the Portland Convention Center.  Come on down, and stop by our table on the 14th to say hello! 

Walking and working with you for justice, 

Emily Jameson
