Skinner Brings Awareness To Church-Goers

Author E. Benjamin Skinner, author of the horrifying book about modern-day slavery entitled A Crime So Monstrous: Face to Face with Modern Day Slavery, hit the Terra Nova Church in Troy, New York over the weekend to educate a congregation about what he had learned in his travels.

I said I wanted someone younger and I was taken to a room on the second floor… She was offered to me in exchange for a used car.”
