To awaken, equip, and mobilize the Church and community in Maryland to end human trafficking through education, prevention strategies, and restorative survivor services.
Statement of Belief
Following the legacy of abolitionist Harriet Tubman, and transformational leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr. and William Wilberforce, Araminta’s work is founded on God’s call to justice, articulated specifically in Isaiah 61:1, which compels us to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners. Though we find strength, guidance and encouragement in sharing a spiritual life together, we welcome partners with or without religious beliefs who share our common vision to see human dignity upheld. Grounded in the belief that every person is created in the image of God, we provide assistance to victims of trafficking regardless of their religious beliefs, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender.
1. Count every individual we encounter as more important than ourselves
2. Act, knowing that there are higher purposes at stake than our own comfort and safety
3. Provide a platform for unity among all those who join in the effort
4. Survivor informed and integrated
