A movement to end human trafficking called "End it," took place at Thomas Road Baptist Church and featured several local organizations that aim to fight human trafficking.
"End it" was a worship night organizers hoped will draw awareness to the issue of human trafficking.
"A lot of times I think we think okay it happens somewhere like far off, but it does happen here in Lynchburg and it is a problem and there are organizations here that need help with this issue," stated Josh Baker, the Thomas Road Baptist Church College Ministry Coordinator.
February 7 is "shine a light on slavery day" worldwide and it's designated as a day to recognize the problem of human trafficking.
The Remade Campaign is one of the local organizations fighting the human trafficking problem.
Founder and Director Veronica Bullock, and others, spoke about the widespread issue of human trafficking.
"We want to educate the community, partner with organizations, and then start the road to building a restorative care home here in our community to be able to bring those people in and love them," stated Bullock.
