Product Description

Slavery still exists in the United States of America.

Tens of millions of humans live in bondage worldwide, tens of thousands in the US.

As seen recently on Fox News, Dillon Burroughs and Charles Powell bring awareness about what's happening in our nation and world. The book and DVD teach about:

  • Human trafficking
  • Sexual exploitation
  • Forced labor
  • Agricultural slavery


Not in My Town answers questions and promotes discussion about the slavery system that crisscrosses Atlanta, Orlando, Las Vegas, New York, California, Texas, North Carolina, Haiti, Amsterdam, India, Cambodia, and beyond. The authors' gripping journey shocks but also motivates and provides resources to equip new generations of abolitionists from all corners of society and diverse worldviews who share the common call to stop injustice.

Not in My Town by Dillon Burroughs and Charles Powell strives to show that slavery still exists today, and it's probably closer to you than people think. The book's title reflects many US citizens' disbelief that this ancient crime could be happening today, let alone in their own neighborhoods. Yet, it is estimated that up to 18,000 people are trafficked as slaves into our nation each year. This book defines modern slavery, shows its effects, and encourages citizens to act.

Readers obtain a greater awareness of trafficking within America as Burroughs and Powell move from Orlando to Las Vegas to Atlanta, sharing the stories of trafficking activists and victims they meet. Powell's years as an undercover cop give him an insightful perspective on street crime and the ability to dive into dangerous situations and get stories straight from the victims.

Readers are taught specific ways to speak out and stand against trafficking worldwide by taking action here in the United States. The passion in this book is inspiring. The authors clearly show that the people entrapped in sweatshop labor, agricultural slavery, or sexual exploitation need help.

Not in My Town urges Christians to "loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free" (Isaiah 58:6, ESV).

While it's not particularly well-written stylistically, this book provides good information and direction on what steps to take after education. It's a good text for someone interested in the issue and wanting to gain a general understanding and make the issue personal. Not in My Town shows readers the problem of slavery is still relevant, and is as local as it is global. – Emily Luttrull, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
