Churches and Individuals Across LA Have Chosen to S.T.A.N.D. with Us.
Faith Initiative to Abolish Trafficking mobilizes individuals, ministries, and churches in the fight against human trafficking through prevention, collaboration, and practical “next steps.” Will you S.T.A.N.D with us?
Here’s How You Can Become an Official FIAT Aligned Partner:
I/We acknowledge that human trafficking is happening not just abroad, but also in Los Angeles. We believe that God cares about this issue and has called us to respond with compassion and action. Therefore, we have decided to S.T.A.N.D against Human Trafficking and S.T.A.N.D for justice, love, and restoration. We will S.T.A.N.D with the Faith Initiative to Abolish Trafficking by agreeing to:
Say Something – We will let people in our sphere of influence know that human trafficking is happening in Los Angeles and direct them to appropriate resources. We will notify our church/ministry about FIAT’s upcoming quarterly events by promoting it on our church website, social media, bulletin, flyer, and/or stage announcement so they can stay informed.
Take Action –We agree to take action against human trafficking by seeking God’s heart for this issue and finding practical ways to get involved. We commit to doing at least one activity or action to prevention or combat human trafficking each year as a church community. Click here to see activity/project ideas. (link to projects page)
Accept our responsibility as a faith community to stay educated on this topic. We have read and agree with Faith Initiatives to Abolish Trafficking’s E.N.G.A.G.E mission statement. We will give the National Human Trafficking Hotline (888-373-7888) to our staff and/or volunteers, so they are prepared if a situation arises.
Network and Collaborate– We realize that we are not alone in this fight and that we are stronger together. We will not assume “what’s needed,” but will listen to the felt needs of service providers, law enforcement, and victims by staying connected to FIAT. We commit to attend at least one FIAT event each year.
Designate at least one individual from our church/ministry to be our FIAT representative. S/he will act as the primary contact for FIAT and will keep FIAT in the loop as to what you are doing to engage your church. S/he will fill out 1 survey at the end of the year detailing your church’s involvement with FIAT.
I’ve fully read and commit to Faith Initiative to Abolish Trafficking’s S.T.A.N.D agreement.
