Welcome to That's the Hope and the Dream podcast!
Today I am talking to my friend Allison. We reminisce about our life-changing trip to Israel together, and then we dive into human trafficking, Unconditional - the ministry Allison serves with, Trace fashion, ethical buying habits, and Dressmember. Make sure to listen at the middle and end for more information about human trafficking and global slavery. We also touch on spiritual disciplines within different streams of denominations, and we learn Allison’s favorite attribute of God. Listen in.
Our vision is a world without slavery. Help me to raise $500 in the month of December to help end human trafficking around the world and support survivors. ANY amount will help.
Here are just a few resources regarding human trafficking:
AWARENESS CAN SAVE LIVES. Recognize the signs of trafficking: here and here and here.

Here are some amazing organizations you can support in the global fight for human dignity against trafficking and slavery. IJM, Dressmember, Cast (2018 efforts), A21, The Freedom Story, Thorn, Saving Innocence, and Restore.
Stats: 1 in 200 people are slaves. In 2016, the number of slaves globally was 40.3 million. “Human trafficking is a hidden crime, making it hard to quantify. Anti-trafficking advocates are often faced with the challenge of how to most effectively convey the scope and severity of the problem while putting victims’ stories into context. The swift movement of trafficked victims and the invisibility of these crimes makes it nearly impossible to determine exactly how many slaves there are in the world.” - source.
Dressmember Enneagram post? It’s like they know me.
You can find ethical clothing brands here and here.
