York Moore talks about the hidden issue of trafficking in our culture

The Price of Life invitational is a social justice campaign coming to the Omaha metro the week after Labor Day, September 2 – 6. Its purpose is to unite leaders from the university, church community, business arena and political realm with local and international organizations on the front lines in the battle against human trafficking. The diverse events of Omaha Price of Life will educate, challenge and inspire participants to get involved in a movement to end the modern day slavery of labor and sex trafficking beginning here in the city. The voices and talents involved in this multi-layered initiative will bring the strength of a community approach in confronting a social injustice of global proportions. Price of Life seeks to:

BROADEN
the coalition of organizations and individuals actively seeking justice in the arena of human trafficking and the sexual exploitation that accompanies it.

IMPACT
state and federal law by partnering with lawmakers who are passionate about justice, giving them access to students and community members in the Omaha metro.

ILLUSTRATE
the connection between faith, spirituality and justice in the process of working for the freedom and flourishing of victims of modern day slavery.
