Bringing Young Leaders Together

by Hanne Fellers

The beginning of the year is usually a busy time for our U.S. office due to January being human trafficking awareness month. We were able to help spread awareness about human trafficking to over 500 people just on January 11th - which is the national human trafficking day in the US declared by the President since 2010.

We hosted a MyGenMyFight Leaders meeting at the end of January and had several students ranging from middle school to college age attending. It is always so exciting to hear from these student leaders. Many of them are planning a bigger initiative during their spring semester, such as hosting an assembly for their whole school, movie screenings, community fundraisers, art shows etc. Through these leaders, thousands of their own peers will hear about human trafficking on their school campus.  

Thanks to technology, we were even able to video call a MyGenMyFight student leader all the way in Atlanta, GA! The students are always so full of life and share great ideas. We started our meeting off by playing the “egg drop” icebreaker game. We divided the leaders into 3 groups and gave each group one raw egg. The point of the game is to prevent the egg from breaking when dropped from the top of a small ladder or chair. The team has to find something to break the fall of the egg. They were given 5 minutes to find materials outside or in our meeting space to break the fall and they all did amazing. None of the eggs broke! They were creative and worked well together. Watch the videos below to see the action.

Our stateside missionary, Vickie McCoy, shared about some current events happening at ZOE and also encouraged and inspired the leaders to keep going. New clubs are getting started and we are so grateful for all the leaders that lead MyGenMyFight clubs all around the U.S. These young leaders are true world changers. Please reach out to us if you or someone you know is interested in starting a justice club at your school, community group or church:

Honest Reflection

Written By - Hanne Fellers

I’ve been in a season where I am reflecting and constantly being reminded of why I am in this work. Before I get into some of the things I’ve been reflecting on, I just want to THANK YOU, ZOE friends, for engaging with us. Without YOU, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. We are so grateful for your support.

Combating Trafficking in the U.S.

written by, Hanne Fellers

Every summer, The U.S. State Department releases the Trafficking In Persons Report. Many of our ZOE staff anticipate the release of this report every year. We’re always curious to which angle the report will take. This years report did not disappoint. It is filled with heart wrenching stories, but also inspiring progress and victories of good people who fought the good fight and won. It’s encouraging to read about what people are doing all over the world to combat trafficking.

We constantly meet new people at ZOE. We’re always amazed at how people come to know about ZOE. Often it’s “word of mouth”, other times it’s from a ZOE staff member sharing at a community event, school or a church. Sometimes people hear about us through a friend sharing one of our posts on their social media. We are so thankful for all our ZOE friends who passionately share about human trafficking and the work we do to their sphere of influence.
