The Freedom Summit is a San Francisco Bay Area conference on modern slavery and human trafficking. The goal of the conference is to inspire, equip, and unite people from around the Bay Area who will take a stand against the injustice of slavery.

An estimated 27 million people are slaves today, more than during 400 years of the transatlantic slave trade. The sale of human beings is the third largest illicit trade following drugs and weapons, but is growing faster than both of these. An estimated 50% of the victims are children and 80% are women. The problem is huge, we need your help!

Date: Friday and Saturday May 15 & 16

Location: Abundant Life Christian Fellowship
2440 Leghorn Street, Mountain View, CA 94043

Cost: $25-$55 (scholarships available)

Details:
There will be an expo with many local and national anti-human
trafficking organizations. The plenary speakers include:
Bethany Hoang - International Justice Mission
David Batstone - Not For Sale Campaign
Nathan George - Trade as One
Francis Chan - Cornerstone Church, Simi Valley CA
