Ending modern-day human slavery.
Who are FA’s members?
Individuals, businesses, community organizations, and faith groups who share our passion to stop human trafficking. Join us by volunteering or financially supporting our efforts today!
Why should I join FA?
Human trafficking is alive and well in our world. In fact, there are more slaves today (~21 million) than at any time in human history. Slavery doesn’t discriminate. It exists in every nation on earth and its victims are male and female, young and old, healthy and handicapped, from various ethnic backgrounds, and all economic levels.
People are bought and sold in our community. FA is dedicated to addressing the crime in ‘our own backyard.’ Join us and take a stand to lead the anti-trafficking movement forward and end the modern practice of slavery. We need your support to help stop this horrible crime.
Why does FA reach out to faith communities?
The call to do justice crosses all faith lines and communities of faith can be very strong allies in the fight for freedom. We welcome and seek partnerships with all faith communities who recognize the call to stop human trafficking. We are proud to partner with many churches who live out God’s love and justice to those in need.
Does FA endorse any candidates or specific political party?
No. FA is strictly nonpartisan and does not endorse candidates or political parties.
