This past summer, we had the privilege of partnering with several talented music artists for the Gospel Music Association's #LoveGoesViral concert series. These concerts were created to help bring awareness and support for our anti-trafficking work and COVID-19 Global Relief Effort. Our amazing artist advocates included Nicole C. Mullens, Austin & Lindsey Adamec, Patsy Clairmont, Sandra McCracken, Cindy Morgan, and Andrew Greer. Watch the following video to learn more:
Sandra McCracken, Cindy Morgan, Patsy Clairmont, and Andrew Greer joined their musical talents together for an inspiring time of music and worship for the #LoveGoesViral concert series.
“I think they [Love Justice] would be the first to say they can’t do this alone. It’s overwhelming. They would use up all their strength. They need the security of people to come alongside them. I am so grateful that gets to be me and that gets to be you. We can make a difference in the world," shares Patsy Clairmont, a professional author and speaker for over 40 years and one of the founding speakers for the Women of Faith conferences.
Sandra McCracken, a songwriter, record producer, and guest writer for multiple Christian outlets, states, "When I think about the idea of love and justice, those two words, they connect, they link, they bounce off of each other. And in the world and the moment we are living in, there are a lot of places of dissonance where we don't experience those two things in full."
“It's a holistic organization that is not only on the front lines of anti-human trafficking but also on the front lines of fighting famine, and they do that really efficiently and well—especially in these difficult times where those already vulnerable people are made even more vulnerable by the circumstances of COVID," shares Andrew Greer, a multiple Dove Award-nominated singer/songwriter, producer, author, and television/podcast host.
Nashville singer/songwriter Cindy Morgan states, "I was thrilled to be a part of the #LoveGoesViral Concert Series in partnership with Love Justice International." Cindy is a two-time GRAMMY® nominee, a thirteen-time Dove winner, and a recipient of the prestigious Songwriter of the Year trophy. She also has 21 number-one radio hits to her credit and has penned songs for many notable artists.

40.3 million people live in modern-day slavery because of human trafficking (Global Slavery Index). We train and place monitors at borders and transit points to identify and stop trafficking as it is occurring, BEFORE beautiful lives are exploited and sold into slavery. To date, we've intercepted over 22,000 individuals to prevent them from being trafficked. To learn about our anti-trafficking work and COVID-19 Global Relief Effort, visit here.
