Around 300 abolitionists gathered for the 4-day Justice Rally conference and outreach—hosted by our friends Elijah Rising, in partnership with Exodus Cry—and we pray Houston will never be the same.

In our culture today there is a dangerous cover story being told. It's propagated by those profiting from the sex industry and this story promotes prostitution as a glamorous, exciting, and legitimate form of work for women in need of a little extra cash.
