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.

CVJC is providing limited resources, referrals and consultations during this time. Contact us at 559-725-1865 or email us at cvjusticecoalition@gmail.com

From the documentary website:
“Nefarious, Merchant of Souls, is a hard-hitting documentary that exposes the disturbing trends in modern sex slavery. From the very first scene, Nefarious ushers you into the nightmare of sex slavery that hundreds of thousands experience daily. You’ll see where slaves are sold (often in developed, affluent countries), where they work, and where they are confined. You’ll hear first-hand interviews with real victims and traffickers, along with expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders. From initial recruitment to victim liberation—and everything in between—the previously veiled underworld of sex slavery is uncovered in the groundbreaking, tell-all Nefarious, Merchant of Souls.”

Today starts the Lenten season for many Christians. This season, whether you observe lent of not, we encourage you to spend time and seek God’s heart regarding justice and human trafficking, in your community and worldwide. Let Him show you how you are connected.
Be still and listen to what He wants to do in you and with you in this time. Devote time to prayer into this issue, pray for those who are impacted including the whole community, pray into the movement to bring justice and those involved. We will be providing points of prayer each day this season on our facebook page and Twitter
We encourage you to also check out bible studies and/or devotional to read through.
Suggestions:
Each day read and meditate on a different scripture concerning justice. Consider what it means and listen for what God wants to tell you. See our scripture list.

The goal of Freedom Week is to provide you with a greater understanding of the issue of human trafficking in our community- both the tragedy and the hope.  We have compiled a Resource booklet to help  connect you to those providing help to victims of human trafficking in our community.

May it help you begin to develop your own response, and in turn, enthuse your local community to get involved in helping free the captives and create a “slave free” world. Click on the image below to view and download
