ASK SENATORS TO PASS THE TVPRA AND THE END TRAFFICKING IN GOVERNMENT CONTRACTING BILLS IN 2012

In 2000, Congress passed an innovative bill called the Trafficking Victims Protection Act to combat modern-day slavery around the world. That law must be renewed in order to sustain the life-saving programs it established. Please urge Congress to endorse the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.  This needs to be done by the end of 2012.  We are runnung out of time.  Here are the simple steps to take.  It only takes a minute!

Abolitionist Summit

GBPAN works with Exodus Cry (a prayer movement against human trafficking out of IHOP) GBPAN holds monthly conference calls agreeing in prayer in Exodus Cry’s City In Focus among other prayer initiatives.

Exodus Cry’s second annual Aboltion Summit is being held at Kansas City, Missouri on January 2-4,2013  It is a practical theological  time of equipping for aboltionists.  It is three days of training to help understand and effectively combat trafficking in our modern society.  GBPAN attended last year.  There were many connections made, and much imparted.  We would like to be able to attend again to connect, learn and be refreshed.

GBPAN will need donations in order to attend this year’s event. Transportation and accomodations will have to be met. If you are interested in helping to make this possible you may make a tax deductable donation through LegacyMakers International by using the donate button on GBPAN’s website. Email gbpan2012@gmail.com with any questions.
