As the Price of Life moves forward
In September 2014, Christ Community Church partnered with Intervarsity Christian Fellowship to bring a week long social justice campaign to Omaha, NE. The purpose of the campaign was 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. Price of Life Omaha consisted of several diverse events to educate, challenge and inspire participants to get involved in a movement to end modern day slavery of labor and sex trafficking beginning here in the city. After a week of events, participants felt the need to create a long lasting movement in Omaha to combat the issue human trafficking for as long as it takes for it to end.
Price of Life Omaha exists to educate the community about human trafficking and mobilize individuals into action. Additionally, we seek to unify non-profits, churches, government agencies, and law enforcement to fight human trafficking in Nebraska and Western Iowa by facilitating strategic partnerships.
Human Trafficking is always changing, growing, and looks different across the world. The Price of Life leadership team seeks to educate the Omaha community on the reality of human trafficking, what the issue looks like in our area, and how to respond. A series of “Traffick Schools” are held throughout the year with guest speakers, video clips, and statistical information to help educate the community. Check out our online training, which includes content from our last Traffick School.
A CALL TO ACTION
When becoming familiar with the issue of human trafficking, we hope you feel compelled to action. Price of Life Omaha exists to connect you with anti-trafficking events and volunteer opportunities within organizations throughout the community. Check out our calendar (coming shortly) of events for more information, or complete our volunteer intake form.
UNIFY THE VOICES
There are several phenomenal agencies in the community with their own unique part in the fight against human trafficking. Although each agency has its specific focus, Price of Life believes we can best tackle human trafficking with a unified voice. We support the Nebraska Against Trafficking Coalition, for more visit the coalition’s Facebook page

Stories of hope
There are many who are already leading the way.
I was flying to the Bahamas. For lunch. It was unbelievable. Just a few years before this long-distance lunch, I had been living in a run-down trailer park in Florida, pathetically poor. Yet here I was, at age thirteen, taking a jet for a midday meal in an exotic location. And as we soared in the sky toward our destination dinner, I became a member – perhaps the youngest member ever – in the notorious Mile High Club. Read More- The Miracle of Missy
It all began innocently enough. I was an average child from an average family. And what didn’t seem so common, but truly is, was the sexual abuse that took place in my life at a young age. Suddenly, at age five I was awakened to sexual expression, and lust, and power, and control, and fear, and a new perception of love. Read More- Why I Love Strippers
