Nashville, TN (September 12, 2014) Grammy® nominee, multi-Dove Award winning singer/songwriter, and GSN original series star Natalie Grant's own Abolition International, the organization she founded to fight human trafficking, has joined forces with Great Britain's Hope for Justice. The announcement was made at a fund-raising event in Franklin, TN, on September 11th. The newly joined worldwide organization brings two powerful leaders in the field together to advance efforts in the ongoing battle to end atrocities. Nashville has been selected as the new headquarters for Hope for Justice in the United States. The organization is growing to over 70 staff in 5 offices around the world. Hope for Justice, a non-profit organization, will identify and rescue victims, advocate on behalf of survivors, provide restorative care, and train frontline professionals to tackle slavery around the world. Across three continents Hope for Justice will operate a multi-disciplinary model based on 20 years of combined experience.

Speaking at the event last evening, Natalie said:
"Eight years ago I founded Abolition International to be a force for good. It's been an amazing journey; we've seen the restoration of women rescued from trafficking in the US and beyond, but we are battling a significant evil. That's why I am so delighted that we're joining together and radically expanding our ability to fight trafficking and to change lives. There is amazing beauty in a life restored and, with your help, we want to give that gift to many, many victims here at home and around the world."

Human trafficking and modern slavery shatters the lives of men, women and children around the world. Whether it's for the purposes of sexual exploitation, forced labor or domestic servitude, Hope for Justice is committed to helping victims find their freedom and eventually, restoration. Just last year Hope for Justice rescued 104 victims of human trafficking, the youngest 1 year of age, and the oldest 57 years of age. This partnership will provide proven and effective long-term quality care to every victim rescued.

An inspired performer known for making lasting connections with her audience, Natalie Grant is one of the most honored artists in CCM history; she is a multi-award winning artist, including five-time GMA (Gospel Music Association) Dove Award winner as "Female Vocalist of the Year" (including four consecutive victories spanning 2006 to 2009 and a return win in 2012), as well as a multiple GRAMMY® award nominee. Grant currently has garnered four more Dove nominations this year from her hit album HURRICANE which entered Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart at #1 upon its 2013 release. The album's title track received double Grammy® nominations earlier this year. She is also the star of the hit GSN original series It Takes A Church.
