Sex trafficking. We hear about it on the nightly news and in special interest stories from around the world, but it occurs daily in communities all around us. Every year, thousands of young women are forced into sexual exploitation. Most are under the age of 18. The damage this causes to their emotions and souls is immeasurable. But they are not without hope. The White Umbrella tells stories of survivors as well as those who came alongside to help them to recovery. This book offers principles and guidance to anyone with a heart for these hurting young women and a desire to help.
This book study leads up to our Fifth Sunday Social Justice presentation on Sunday, July 30th at 10am in Wesley Hall. Our speaker will be Toni McKinley, Director of Therapeutic Services at The Refuge for DMST (Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking). Toni has been counseling survivors of trafficking since 2012. She is a survivor and has dedicated her life to help other survivors discover their true potential so they can live a life free from trauma. Toni also teaches and speaks about trafficking all over the nation in order to help prevent the trafficking of our children.
We have a Facebook group for online discussion as well as meeting in person. All are welcome to join us online and/or in person at La Madeline. Contact Pastor Cathy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-478-5684 (ext. 215) for additional information.
