"My Justice Journey"
All of the great justice movements in history are undergirded with this spirit and power, and they appear to have one focal spokesperson, such as William Wilberforce, Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela and many more who have stood in the face of horrific oppression in order to bring dignity to people that seemingly everyone but God had forgotten.
However, behind every great movement there are literally thousands of volunteers building the momentum, each of which are on their own justice journey. Subscribe to "My Justice Journey" blog and hear from Freedom 58 answer and wrestle with some of life’s most difficult questions. We also provide updates from our aftercare partners so you can be informed about people joining forces to end modern-day slavery and oppression.

Its windows and door are closed or blocked, so you cannot see in, all that is visible is the sign with the establishment’s name and two neon open signs. Knowing that human trafficking cases are often found at so-called massage parlors, this boarded up business makes me very uneasy.

Nine beautiful people slaughtered Wednesday night during Bible study at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, and their relatives were invited to make a statement today in court. Did you hear what they said? They spoke of mercy. They offered forgiveness. They invited the suspect, who was linked in by video from jail, to please look for God.
