The Coalition thanks to ALL who joined us April 19 & 20th for Just Act! A special thanks goes to the 50+ people who spent late hours on Friday night or early Saturday morning ACTING in our community! By supporting this event you all helped us to bring about holistic and lasting change to those impacted by human trafficking. Petitions were signed, demonstrations were held, training occurred, and fervent prayer took place. Friday night there were 25 people who walked and prayed on Parkway Drive – these people took a courageous stand to demonstrate our intolerance of the injustice of human trafficking.

If you are not on our e-newsletter list, fill our our form  so we can contact you about upcoming opportunities. There will be more Just Acts happening soon!

In partnership with the Central Valley Justice Coalition, People’s Church and Clovis Hills Community Church present

Nefarious: Merchant of Souls

Thursday, October 4, 2012

7:00 pm
Peoples Church – Main Auditorium
7172 N. Cedar Ave., Fresno, CA 93720

Free admission. Due to content, the screening is recommended for viewers 17 and over. Please be advised that content may be particularly upsetting to some viewers.

Nefarious exposes the dark world of sex trafficking, with accounts from survivors, former sellers, and those working to free victims of sex trafficking. This documentary has a global focus, and is invaluable gaining a deeper understanding the reality of human trafficking.  It includes testimonies of hope and stories of Christ’s redemption in the lives of survivors and former perpetrators.

Promote Nefarious in Your Congregation! We encourage churches to promote Nefarious both within and outside of their congregations. There are huge injustices occuring in the Fresno area relating to human trafficking that can only be addressed through the church. Resources will be available at this event to equip people to get involved locally.

People’s Church is providing promotional materials for churches free of charge (donations are welcome but not required). For more information, publicity materials, or other questions, contact Jed & Bethany von Steinbergs at 559-298-8001 x235 or visit the Nefarious Documentary page on the People’s Church website.

Welcome to The Central Valley Justice Coalition website! Thank you for visiting.
The mission of CVJC is to empower the church and community to bring holistic and lasting change in the lives of those impacted by human trafficking.

Currently, the leadership of CVJCis in the midst of a season of prayer and evaluation of our organization and community. We are partnering with others in efforts to end modern day slavery  and are doing limited work directly with survivors of human trafficking in the Valley during this time.

We encourage you to connect with our partners, who are also hard at work in outreach, survivors support, prevention, and other efforts. Please visit our info page titled Local Organizations for more information on each group. Also, see Local Opportunities to explore ways you can get involved locally.
We also welcome you to explore and use our online resources.
