Fees range from $350 – $1500 and include the presenter, all associated materials, equipment and local travel costs.

Church and Community Awareness

At Araminta, we have seen the injustice of human trafficking to be a unifier among churches and communities in our region. As we link arms over the injustice of child sex trafficking, we let go of differences that often divide us. As the Church rises up against this modern-day injustice, we become a healing agent of restorative community.

We provide awareness presentations and trainings specific to churches, faith-based or community-led social organizations and youth clubs throughout the state.

Demand Response — Under Development

In order to end human trafficking, we must challenge ourselves to recognize our personal contribution to a culture that distorts human dignity and worth. The demand team for Araminta will be responsible for a collaborative response to the demand side of human trafficking, believing that in order to stop human trafficking we need to address what continues to fuel it. Our demand response will begin in the local church with prevention, intervention and education programming for both men and women of all ages, coming at the problem of demand from both societal and theological paradigms. Further information is included in our volunteer training. Church and community resources are currently under development.

“How do you expect to uproot a tree when all you’re doing is ripping at the leaves?” Val Richey, a senior prosecutor in King County, Wash., Raises the point: “If we really want to end commercial exploitation, then we need to talk about demand.”
