NightLight Atlanta

NightLight Atlanta

Atlanta’s sports venues and convention centers, combined with the world’s busiest passenger airport and booming adult entertainment industry, facilitate an environment conducive for sex tourism and trafficking.  According to the Juvenile Justice Fund, approximately 300 underaged girls are commercially sexually exploited per month in Georgia.
In March of 2008, Grace Fellowship Church commissioned a project to address the issue of human trafficking in and around Atlanta.  Based on the vision from NightLight Bangkok, the project included a prevention program to at-risk children, regular outreach to at-risk communities and establishments of adult entertainment, prayer and discipleship, and awareness and response events addressing the physical, psychological, legal, and economic effects of prostitution and trafficking.  In 2009, those efforts were brought under the NightLight International umbrella.
NightLight Atlanta is a faith-based, grassroots movement that reaches out to commercially sexually exploited women and children (domestic and foreign) through prevention, intervention, restoration, and education.  NightLight seeks to mobilize the Body of Christ, while partnering with local law enforcement and service providers, to loose the chains of injustice and set the captives free.
