In the state of North Dakota, the Century Code defines "sex trafficking" as "the promotion, recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, enticement, provision, obtaining or receipt of a person by any means." It has only been recently, in 2009, that human trafficking has been considered a crime in North Dakota, and as of June 18th, 2013 the ND U.S. Attorney recognized human trafficking as a crime affecting reservations in North Dakota. This is happening simultaneously with an increased awareness throughout the entire country, especially among the church. In response, several concerned Fargo area Christians have come together in order to fight the evil of sex trafficking in North Dakota. "Voice for the Captives" is a group in the process of becoming a non-profit in order to bring Christians together to abolish sex trafficking through the love and power of Jesus Christ. We believe it is only through Him that true healing and justice can come.
