This Spring, we will focus on a series of talks/conversations concerning how church leaders can think about social justice and community engagement. The series is held on the third Tuesday of every month at various venues throughout the city. We hope that it will serve your congregation leadership as a resource for some training and teaching. This Spring Speaker Series program is in partnership with OneHouse, an Asian American ministry that seeks to unify and mobilize the body of Jesus Christ through worship and intercessory prayer to bring social justice to global and local communities and to honor Christ’s love for the oppressed.This month we will have the Executive Director of Restore NYC share about the issues facing our community in the area of sex trafficked workers. Ms. Huckel will share some insight on this often neglected issue in the Asian American community and some thoughts on how to engage this community.The trafficking of women and children for sexual exploitation is the fastest growing crime in the world, generating $28 billion dollars a year. NYC’s JFK airport is deemed by the Department of State to be a major port of entry and transit point for trafficking. The sex trade in Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs ranges from brothels, strip clubs, peep booth shows, massage parlors, street prostitution, escort services, bars, and private apartments. This presentation will provide an overview on the issue of sex trafficking from an international, as well as a local NYC-based level, providing specific and concrete ways for the Christian community to serve and fight this injustice in our communities.
