What do Coca-Cola, Six Flags, and human slavery all have in common? Atlanta.
It’s sadly ironic that the home of Martin Luther King has now become a hub for the modern human slave trade.
Atlanta’s explosive growth has brought a tourist economy and exciting attractions to northern Georgia. But that same growth also hides a far more sinister underground. Homelessness, drug use, and crime permeate the city. Children are sold into slavery and prostitution.
The forgotten people here desperately need the hope of Jesus and a second chance.
You might work with the homeless to provide a meal, shelter, or just a friendly ear. You may have the opportunity to share grace and love with those who have been abandoned or rescued from slavery.
You may show the addicts and the lost that each one of them is a precious child of God.
While you’re in Atlanta, you may the opportunity to visit the Georgia Aquarium, The World of Coke, or one of the many other attractions in “The Capital Of the South.” You might even be able to take in a pro sports game.
It’s hard to imagine the tragedy of human trafficking here in our own back yard. Your heart will break and grow strong as you stand and do your part to stop the atrocity.
Atlanta needs you to help it remember how to love. Will you come and be Jesus to the outcasts that need him most?
