Looking for an overview of the problem of trafficking in our county? In fall of 2012, Diana Janz (Hope Ranch Ministries founder) spoke with Maria Anderson of Eugene Daily News.
In her article ("The Price of a Life: Human Trafficking in Lane County"), Maria Anderson collects important information about how lucrative sex trafficking is for pimps and points out that this is a problem of demand. Her article gives us a sober reminder that we need to stand beside women in their time of need--they are approached for prostitution within 48 hours of being on the streets.
We need your help to change this community: to drive down demand for the purchase of sex, to alleviate the pressures that drive people into prostitution, to ease the paths to redemption and safety.
