30 Days of Justice: Faceless

3:38 AM
If you have been following my blog for any of my 30 Days of Justice series, you should be somewhat aware of human trafficking, or modern-day slavery. Today I wanted to highlight yet another organization doing awesome work to combat this injustice.

Faceless International, co-founded by Stephen Christian of Anberlin, aims to defend the plight of exploited people worldwide who have gone faceless and unknown for far too long. They exist to raise awareness about social issues happening throughout the global community. They provide first hand experience and education through trips around the world and solution-based opportunities through regional resources. Along with this desire to put a face on the faceless, they want to empower us. They have partnered with several in the music industry to allow them to use their obvious talent. But they want everyone to use their talents as well. Whether it be an artistic talent, an organizational talent, or a caring heart-we all have the ability to make known the faceless. We all have the ability to be the change. Faceless is here to give you the opportunity to be a voice. They would love to have you use your gifts on one of their trips as we learn about the faceless around the world. But Faceless would also like to connect you with other quality organizations that are here in our own country putting a face on the faceless that get ignored everyday.

On their website, you can find information about trips within the United States that focus on human trafficking awareness. They also do international outreach to places like India. Learn about action steps you can take to make a difference in this cause, whether you have 3 minutes to spare, or 2 weeks, $4 or $1000. Any donation, big or small, can save a life. So check out Faceless and all they have to offer, and begin to discover to make known the faceless in your life.
