'Passion 2013' Takes Up Anti-Trafficking Fight

Ad Feedback

Organizers of this week's Passion 2013 conference in Atlanta are urging college-age Christian students to get involved in the fight against slavery and human trafficking.

Gary Haughen, president of the International Justice Mission, said there are 27 million people held in various forms of slavery around the world.
Still, he told the students they could, by God's grace, be the generation that ends slavery.

Bryson Vogeltanz, chief steward of the Passion 2013 Freedom Initiative, agreed.

"People say these are college students, how can that happen? These are poor Ramen-noodle eating students, how can that happen?" NBC TV station WXIA quoted Vogeltanz.

"Here's the deal, when their heart awakens to the reality of what's going on in the world, they're saying, 'I can do something,'" he said.

The Passion Conference runs through Friday, Jan. 4.
