1. And since we all came from a woman
    Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
    I wonder why we take from our women
    Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
    I think it’s time to kill for our women
    Time to heal our women, be real to our women
    And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies
    That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
    And since a man can’t make one
    He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
    So will the real men get up
    I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your head up

WITHOUT PERMISSION
Awareness/Prevention
We will create opportunities for “Awareness and Prevention” of Human Trafficking. We will engage new laborers and generate finances for public training programs to create High School and Jr. High assemblies to educate students about the strategies of predators on the World Wide Web, at Shopping Malls, and by recruitment.
John’s House
We will work  with local jurisdiction to mandate men/pimps/johns that have been arrested to this education and recovery facility. We will bring truth and freedom to men bound by a life of sexual addiction, perversion, and lust. The goal is to train young men what “real men” do with and for women. We will teach them how to combat the onslaught of sensual, provocative advertising, music, and peers.
By rebuilding a men’s sense of self respect and value to his family, work place and community, we can change the culture of men from predator to protector and hero of women!
Foster Care
We will actively recruit families from the church body to become Foster Parents through the County. We plan to create a training program for certified Foster Parents to prepare for the special needs that are present in trafficked victims. We will petition the Foster Care system to add “trafficked” as a category for parents to request when identifying who they would like to nurture.
The goal is to place trafficked girls identified through juvenile hall and the court system with parents that are Christian, trained, and desire to care for victims of trafficking.
Training
We will partner with local law enforcement to train all officers in Stanislaus, Merced and San Joaquin Counties to identify and recover trafficking victims. We will provide an annual training day and pay the officers wages. We will train first responders and chaplains for outreach teams. We will equip volunteers with tools to be effective in outreach planning, identifying and recovering events. The training will also teach every day people on what to look for and how to contact help should they find someone being held in slavery.
Outreach
Major national and international sporting events are high markets for the organized crime of human trafficking. Victims are brought in large numbers to meet the demand that predominantly male driven sporting events create. We will work out opportunities with other NFP to attend and work major sporting events in California and USA with the sole purpose of the recovering of victims.
Working with other coalitions from all over the country creating a network of information, manpower and financial support gives us greater hope of success.

  6. 10 Things Men And Boys Can Do To Stop Human Trafficking - PDF →

    Human Trafficking is modern day slavery. It is the use of force, fraud, or coercion to compel another person to provide labor or commercial sex against their will, and it is one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises in the world. The Renaissance Male Project believes that men are complicit in this crime when they purchase sex because they create the demand—allowing others to exploit women and children for profit.

    Men must play a role in ending this form of modern-day slavery, a vicious industry that exploits and perpetuates the suffering of hundreds of thousands of women and children in the United States and around the world.

    The United States State Department and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates that:

    • 12.3 million enslaved globally
    • 14,500–17,500 individuals are brought into the United States as human trafficking victims per year
    • 100,000 children in the United States enter prostitution every year
