We are asking that you please restore Annie Lobert's FaceBook page, Hookers For Jesus. There is no reason that her page should be removed. It is not promoting sexual promiscuity. It is promoting the fight against human traffcking and sexual exploitation.
Annie is a survivor of both Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation. Her voice deserves to be heard and the story deserves to be told. The FaceBook page contains stories and comments of current events, victories that have been accomplished, random thoughts from Annie and scripture. There is nothing illegal or offensive about her page, and no reason that it should have been deleted.
We are asking again, that you please restore this page, Hookers For Jesus. Restore this page so that Annie's Minstry has a voice in the FaceBook community and so that people who may need this kind of support can find it.
