There are 27 million enslaved in the world today. Over 21 million are women and children. Modern-day slavery includes forms of both labor trafficking and sex trafficking. An estimated 17,500 new victims are trafficked into the U.S. each year. Minnesota is ranked 13th of the 50 states for the number of slaves it harbors. Slavery is right here in our own backyards.
We are a community devoted to:
• Growing in the knowledge and power of Christ
• Living life together
• And inviting other into the freedom of God’s Kingdom Acts 2:42-47

Many of the products that American consumers purchase have slave labor in their supply chain. Products that are Fair Trade Certified are extremely unlikely to be made by slaves. Purchasing Fair Trade products shifts the demand away from slave made products, forces companies who use slave labor to clean up their supply chain, and reduces slavery. We have researched Fair Trade products at many stores and coffee shops in the Twin Cities and compiled an extensive (though not exhaustive) list of the Fair Trade products you can purchase locally.
