Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking is happening here in our own country. Sex trafficking is the most common form ofmodern-day slavery, with studies estimating that 93% of people trafficked are Canadian-born (Joy Smith Foundation). Everyday, in our homes, communities, towns, and cities, thousands of people who are worthy of love and dignity aretrapped in sexual exploitation with no one to trust and no safe place to escape.
Next Step Ministries (NSM) is on a mission to change that. NSMprovides safety, housing, programming, and skills to help womenimpacted by sexual exploitation as they take steps towardshealing and recovery. Our goal is for every woman to know thatshe has choices and is loved. Next Step Ministries is helping torebuild lives, one courageous woman at a time.

Each allows us the privilege to take aglimpse into her journey, fighting against the voices of shame,judgement, guilt, and oppression. "Her Voice" takes a stand,proclaiming the reality of sexual exploitation and human trafficking and shedding light for allies to stand alongside to end modern-day slavery.
Join us in taking a stand.
