Let The Oppressed Go Free: Prayer Vigil

June 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Gather in Prayer and Song

Gather around the powerful Let The Oppressed Go Free Sculpture on front plaza of The Basilica on Juneteenth.

Join The Basilica Immigrant Support Ministry and The Ascension Church as we raise our voices in song and prayer in a prayer vigil for all those who have been subjected to the trauma of human trafficking.

We will hear stories of those who have experienced this trauma. We will encourage each other, as we pray for healing and transformation of our community.

 

Crisis of Human Trafficking

What Is Human Trafficking?
Human trafficking occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will. Force, fraud, or coercion need not be present if the individual engaging in commercial sex is under 18 years of age.
