What is Human Trafficking? Human Trafficking is defined as the illegal movement of people, typically for the purposes of forced labor or commercial sexual exploitation.
Trafficking in persons is a serious crime and a grave violation of human rights. Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Almost every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims. For years, IPJC has been dedicated to the work of eradicating modern day slavery. Our work on human trafficking includes involvement in local and national anti-human trafficking coalitions, educational resources and presentations for students and adults, legislative advocacy on the national and state level, shareholder advocacy as conveners of the Northwest Coalition for Responsible Investment, and organizing monthly human trafficking vigils, which occur in various cities throughout the country.

Monthly IPJC Human Trafficking Vigils
Monthly prayer vigils held at locations all around the country on the 1st Sunday of the month (currently many are postponed due to the pandemic). If you’d like to start a vigil in your area, contact us for a toolkit.
