This web conference from the Episcopal Church Foundation will be held Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at 4:00PM. There is no cost for this web conference.
As the rector of St. Alban's in Davenport, IA, ECF Fellow Brian McVey (2011) is leading the Episcopal Church to address the issue of human trafficking, one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises in the world. Brian began with a "ministry of presence" at a truck stop on I-80, one of the top sites in the U.S. for transporting, buying, and selling women, children, and men for all forms of forced labor. That ministry is evolving into a network of people and institutions addressing the problem, including congregations and diocesan leaders, local law enforcement and government employees, FBI agents, businesses, social service providers, and politicians. Brian hopes that from their "successes and failures, others can plant similar ministries at other trafficking sites.
