Vineyard Central hosting “Stop Human Traffiking” event
"Life is the gift of our Creator...and it should never be for sale. There is a terrible wickedness afoot in the world...and it has taken root in our own backyard. That wickedness is modern-day slavery...also known as human trafficking. What is Human Trafficking? Who are the victims of trafficking? Who are the traffickers? Where is it happening? How can our local community join the fight? We will wrestle with these questions and explore what is human trafficking and how we can join the fight...
Steven Hamilton is a member of the pastoral staff at the Central Maryland Vineyard. He is helping to facilitate an informal task force within the Vineyard to empower their fight against human trafficking. The Vineyard task force is currently in the midst of filming a documentary and will host a conference in September 2008. Steven was formerly a researcher with the Department of Homeland Security and currently works with trafficking survivors in Ukraine and the U.S."
