Leaders across the faith spectrum — with the Salvation Army leading the way -- have been working to protect and assist victims and eradicate child trafficking. "Stopping the exploitation of our youth is a moral imperative that unites people across the faith spectrum, across the religion spectrum," says Valarie Kaur, director of Groundswell, a multifaith initiative that aims to inspire strategic action for justice.
These pages provide highlights of The Salvation Army's efforts to eradicate human trafficking. The Salvation Army firmly believes that the abuse and exploitation of human beings through any form of human trafficking is an offense against humankind and against God. This belief, combined with our mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination, motivates us to work vigilantly for the prevention of human trafficking and for the restoration of survivors.
