Luke 4:18 [KJV]

Luke 4:18 [KJV]

Today is Lobby Day at the state capitol in Georgia.  I will be joining individuals from Wellspring LivingOut of DarknessyouthSparkStreet Grace, and others as we unite our voices as a voice for hope for the hundreds of Hopes held captive in the state of Georgia. If you cannot join us in person, please join us in prayer, as we speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves [Proverbs 31:8a].  Write and/or email your elected officials today, asking them to:

  • Pass legislation that requires the posting of the National Human Trafficking Hotline number in bars, hotels, and venues where it’s likely that a human trafficking victim can access information for rescue and safe refuge.
  • Pass legislation promoting shaming that makes it mandatory to have information about a perpetrator who buys children for sexual services publically published in the press after their arrest.
  • Pass legislation following up on last year’s expungement bill, which includes the sealing of records for juveniles charged with prostitution.
  • Pass a resolution urging the Congress of the United States to pass legislation increasing criminal penalties for offenders involved in illegal human trafficking and to provide greater assistance to the women and children who are victims of these heinous crimes.

Remember what the Lord Himself declared in Luke 4:18-19,

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Let this be the year, the year Georgia takes a strong stand for our children and declares in the state of Georgia, children are NOT FOR SALE!
