"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.

Slavery Still Exists in the Land of the Free

For years I didn't think there was anything I could do. My call to "do justice" was on the shelf collecting dust until I was confronted with the reality that human trafficking exists in MY city.
