WorldCrafts will host a Fair Trade Coffee Break on May 11 from 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. at the national WMU building located in Birmingham, Alabama. The Fair Trade Federation celebrates World Fair Trade Day every spring. In honor of this day, WorldCrafts will be having a coffee break and informative presentation on human exploitation/sex trafficking by New Hope® Publishers authors Dillon Burroughs and Charles Powell.
Charles Powell is a social justice activist, film producer, conference speaker, and founder of Joshua’s Mission, a Christian nonprofit organization whose mission is to abolish human trafficking and modern slavery. Over the past three decades Charles has trained in counter-terrorism, worked as a bodyguard for royalty, and lived undercover in the war on drugs. Dillon Burroughs (readdB.com) is a best-selling writer of more than 26 books. He is best known for his collaborative works with faith-based leaders, authors, and athletes, though he has also earned a growing reputation within the social justice movement.
