These are some shirts being sold for to benefit human trafficking victims thousands of miles overseas. I see organizations like this all the time, and I think they’re great - all human trafficking victims need help. I don’t want less money to go to these charities. I just find it sad that I’ve searched high and low, right here in the US for help with my human trafficking traumas (both during and after the abuse) and there are none, but we’re willing to help people who are farther away from us. What makes our trauma less significant? Because we (as the human trafficking victims so frequently sold in the US) are here and not there?
What I find particularly ironic is the one on the upper right. “For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no help. He will rescue them from oppression and violence…”
So people are spending nearly $30 (most of which will probably be lost in administrative costs and travel) in order to remind the human trafficking victim next to them on the bus that, if god really loved her, he’d be delivering her from oppression like he apparently does for some people - as long as their not prostituted here.
