End It

Bayou City Fellowship is demanding a cultural change to reduce the demand for sex trafficked persons

Rachel LeBaron's story about reaching out to women in the brothels of Houston is woven through her story about faith. While we each take our own paths, I think we can all relate to her sympathy for the victims of sex-trafficking and her charge that people deserve dignity and respect. It's universally unfair to subject another person to something so dehumanizing.

And while it's valiant of LeBaron's organization to reach out to massage parlors that act as local brothels, what will truly be effective is to end the demand for sex-trafficking victims entirely. As she says in the video, "To end the exploitation of women and children, we have to change our culture and that begins with ourselves."
