Prostitution. Sexual exploitation. Sex slavery.
Portland has an enormous incident rate per capita for the sexual victimization of women, teens, and children in the United States. We believe that God has placed His Church in the center of this moral devastation to be agents of His grace in bringing healing and freedom to those trapped in, and by, this depravity. We know that local churches working together with civic organizations can significantly impact this destructive victimization.
A Collaborative Anti-Human Trafficking Movement
Numerous organizations have taken up the fight against this community wide atrocity. The church is entering that battle as she is moved by compassion and a sense of justice to make a significant contribution. That help can only come through a unified effort. These groups are doing great work and Compassion Connect seeks to support them by helping people get involved with them. Compassion Connect is committed to helping coordinate work and providing the needed information for the Church to serve as Jesus' body to bring His love and freedom to the captives.
