Some years ago, we were shocked to learn that there was a major sex trafficking industry in our country and that Atlanta and the surrounding area were a big part of the problem. The members who began the Perimeter Justice Team in 2008 may not have envisioned just how big the problem was, but they prayed. God began to answer, bringing others to join them in the work and in the burden of prayer. And, they found other like-minded ministries with which to partner.
In January 2015, we sponsored our first Justice Conference, inviting metro-area churches and individuals who shared our concerns or wanted to know more about this heart-rending issue. Since then the Justice Team has hosted further luncheons to raise awareness about the crisis. We have continued to meet throughout the year to provide further education, connection to resources, and equipping for active involvement in the areas of prevention, rescue, and survivor restoration through partnership with ministries and organizations in the community.
