Freedom Churches are partnering faith communities who partner with the Coalition and are committed to addressing human trafficking from a collaborative, Christ-centered perspective. 

The Coalition has been mobilizing and equipping churches since before we became an organization in 2010. We have worked with over 50 churches in the Central Valley, and have connections with churches in other states and across the globe.

THE VISION

Our vision is to see followers of Christ leverage their influence to make a difference in the lives of those being exploited, responding effectively to human trafficking in our community. Whether you are a pastor, a church member, a business owner, an educator, a social worker, a student…YOUR voice is needed. Partner with us by identifying and reporting victims, preventing trafficking, and taking part in bringing transformation to our region.

Central Valley Justice Coalition commits to

1. Communicate (about regional human trafficking issues & news)

2. Provide Opportunities (prayer, education, prevention, ways to serve and lead)

3. Make transparent and detailed financial records available to all partners to ensure that your funds are being used to further our mutual goals.

4. Resource and Support (those affected by human trafficking; victims, survivors, families, advocates)

5. Educate and Consult (with church members, leaders, groups- this includes speaking at one event or providing one training annually by request)
