last Sunday I led our adult class discussing the demand side of trafficking. In the USA, about 16% of men buy sex at some point in their life. Most of these men are in committed relationships. That begs many questions, but that isn’t the point of this post. We ended the class discussing the things we could do as individuals, as a congregation, and as a community to reduce the demand side of trafficking. As one astute audience member said, “if there wasn’t a demand, there wouldn’t be sex trafficked individuals.”
Over at the BTS faculty blog, I have a bit more about the demand for good people to do something. Check it out plus the additional ideas of what you might do at the end of the blog.
