Exposing and Ending Human Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery
Dillon Burroughs and Charles Powell
Even with major antitrafficking efforts in place around much of the country, sexual exploitation, forced labor, and agricultural slavery continue as the norm in many places of the United States . . . probably even in your own backyard. Exploring leads in their own hometown area of Atlanta, investigators Charles Powell and Dillon Burroughs unearthed an ugly truth—a dark subculture of human trafficking in their own neighborhood. Their unforgettable look into the secret world of America’s modern slave trade led to a global undercover operation to rescue victims from today’s greatest form of evil. Join their gripping journey that will shock readers and motivate a new generation to join the struggle for a nation—and world—where every individual can respond to slavery with Not in My Town.
“Not in My Town is exposing the modern-day exploitation of human beings in sex slavery, domestic servitude, and all kinds of forced labor. I applaud Charles Powell and Dillon Burroughs for communicating facts and real-life dramas in this unfolding story of human suffering. Both of these men are men of integrity and they have a heart to set the captives free!”
—Bruce Ladebu, founder and president of Children’s Rescue Initiative

About the Authors
Dillon Burroughs is a best-selling writer of more than 26 books. He is best known for his collaborative works with faith-based leaders, authors, and athletes, though he has also earned a growing reputation within the social justice movement. Burroughs was raised in a deeply spiritual community neighboring the Benedictine monks of St. Meinrad Archabbey in southern Indiana. His early years included extended times among a land of vast forest beauty and frequent isolation. This uncommon setting sent him on his own unique faith journey which continues to shape his writings today.
Charles J. Powell is an author, adventurer, abolitionist, and civil rights activist whose real life reads like best-selling thriller novel, from encounters with Soviet spies at the end of the cold war to his work as a bodyguard for royalty to living undercover in the War on Drugs. Powell appears on television, speaks at conferences, and writes for numerous publications on a variety of topics from human trafficking to postmodernism to terrorism. He is an alumnus of Trevecca Nazarene University as a behavioral scientist graduate.
