We are a passionate outreach team dedicated in the fight against sex trafficking. Our commitment is to spread God’s agape love to those who are or have been victimized by sex trafficking.
The lotus flower symbolizes perseverance due to it blooming out of muddy waters, one petal at a time, opening up into a beautiful flower. We believe the power of God’s agape love brings beauty out of the muddiest of waters.
PETALS partners with local churches and community organizations that are involved in the cause of fighting sex trafficking. PETALS also utilizes outreach to spread awareness and educate the public about sex trafficking.
