85: Prevention that Empowers – A Biblical Best Practice Model [PODCAST]

Ending Human Trafficking Podcast logo

In Episode 85, Dr. Sandra Morgan and Dave Stachowiak discuss one of the oldest prevention stories available to us – 2 Kings 4:1-7 (NLT). In this story, a mother of two young boys works to prevent her boys from being taken as slaves. The woman asks for help and begins taking steps to ensure her boys stay in her care. With the help of community involvement, the mother gains a sense of dignity and a way to provide for her children. Sandra and Dave discuss the importance of looking not only at the faces of those being trafficked but of those who are responsible for providing and protecting these children. Prevention strategies begin when we empower the mothers of children at risk. They look at the power of starting with just a few small steps that fit the community and culture and how it can cultivate sustainable prevention strategies. This podcast poses significant questions such as:

Where is the front line to end human trafficking?

How can you prevent trafficking in your community?

Empowerment and prevention come hand in hand, how does that effect the way you strategize in the fight to end trafficking?

79: Refuse To Do Nothing, Revisited [PODCAST]

On this episode of the Ending Human Trafficking Podcast, GCWJ Director Sandra Morgan led a conversation with Kim Yim and Shayne Moore, co-authors of Refuse To Do Nothing, at the Women of Vision, Orange County Faces of Change event in May 2014. These two abolitionist mothers seek to share with others how to strive to be global thinkers and advocates no matter the age of your children and busyness of life, in order to break through the thoughts that we cannot make a difference in this global problem. Kim and Shayne share their stories about how we can not only seek to understand but to take the next steps by thinking about what we buy, taking the extra minute to think about what you are purchasing, and making the effort to open your eyes and see what is going on around you, in your neighborhood and in your city. Listen to Kim and Shayne talk about being abolitionists, what slavery looks like in the world today, and how you can truly get engaged and make a difference.
