“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” ― Patrick Henry
Did you happen to catch the news within the past week about a woman found wandering the streets of Melbourne who stated that she was a victim of human trafficking and had been held a slave? The reality of modern day slavery has hit home and we must continue to move forward in the movement to end the debasement of human beings. I sat down to have a brief conversation with Pastor Gus Davies (who emigrated with his family from Sierra Leone to the USA) to better understand the link between immigration and human trafficking. I invite you to share in our conversation by commenting below.
