People involved with Faith Alliance Against Slavery and Trafficking (FAAST or FAAST International)
FAAST is a strategic alliance of Christian organizations working together to combat slavery and human trafficking.
Mission: FAAST exists to mobilize and equip communities to combat slavery and human trafficking and to restore survivors.
Vision: We see a world of transformed communities, free of slavery and exploitation
WHY WE EXIST
We believe every human being is created in the image of God with inherent dignity, value and purpose. We believe that followers of Jesus have a biblical mandate to care for the poor and the oppressed—those who are vulnerable and exploited. Slavery and human trafficking are forms of evil that seek to destroy God’s image in people and corrupt His purposes for humanity. FAAST exists because eradicating human trafficking reflects the heart of God.
We believe there is hope. We believe the best agency of change and restoration is God’s people, the Church. We need the entire body of Christ working together to effectively address human trafficking. Thus, FAAST was created to foster a community of Christ-followers equipped to restore freedom to those captive in exploitation and slavery.
