Human trafficking exploits the most vulnerable people in the world.

Poverty is an obvious vulnerability—but all poor people are not exploited. It is poverty plus other factors that contribute to the vulnerable being trafficked and oppressed.

On Tuesday, March 23rd at 7:00pm EDT, join global expert on human trafficking and LUV’s board member, Rev. Lauran Bethell, for an interactive Zoom conversation during our Women Making History Month. Lauran will share stories of her over-three-decade trail-blazing career and invite you to dive deeper into the root causes of human trafficking and how you can transform the world with LUV by empowering the most vulnerable.

Rev. Lauran Bethell:

Since 1986, Lauran has been passionate about sharing Jesus’ hope and healing with victims of human trafficking and prostitution and offering prevention opportunities for those at risk.

She served as the first director of the New Life Center in Chiang Mai, Thailand, for 14 years before God led her in 2001 to share her pioneering experiences as a global consultant. In 2005, she received the Baptist World Alliance Human Rights Award, which was presented to her by President Jimmy Carter.

Based in Europe for 18 years, Lauran traveled extensively throughout the world to encourage Christians in anti-trafficking endeavors. Now living in California, she continues her ministry with victims of trafficking and the organizations—like Lift Up the Vulnerable—serving them globally, advising, networking and conferencing in multiple and creative ways.
