Hello, my name is Jake McDonald, and I am a member of the SHIFT justice conference. During my mission trip to India, I discovered the travesties of human trafficking in the red light districts, and when I came back to Denver and learned that it is happening in my own backyard as well I knew I had to do something. I believe God brought SHIFT into my life in order turn my emotions into actions through Him. He taught me that love is the only way to truely eradicate the issue, but we first must create awareness and through that awareness, action. I am excited to see how SHIFT empowers others to help prevent the issue. Only together can we put an end to human trafficking.
