This month of January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month. So today on the podcast I’m joined by Jalyn Fawbush of Zera House, a non-profit organization that is on a mission to provide a safe haven for women who have been victims of human trafficking.
Human Trafficking is defined as the illegal practice of procuring or trading in human beings for the purpose of prostitution, forced labor, or other forms of exploitation. Simply put… it is modern-day slavery. And as of now, there are millions of slaves being trafficked around the world, many of whom are women and young children.
Now Jalyn, along with Zera House, looks to provide a safe home for women who have been victims of this awful crime. Helping them to find healing through counseling, building life skills, job training, and much more.
In this episode, Jalyn and I take a deeper dive into human trafficking. We talk about how she became active with this issue, and why human trafficking is such a wide-spread criminal enterprise. We also discuss ways that you can keep yourself and your loved ones safe, both at home and while traveling. As well as how you can support victims of human trafficking so that they can find healing. I hope you enjoy this episode and find it insightful. And I ask that you join us in spreading awareness by sharing this episode with your friends and family so that they can get all of this information too. Thank you!
