Charles Powell has been a strong presence in the Deep South for a long time. He has provided security and protection to celebrities and has advised me on security when I needed it. I have watched his writing evolve for over a decade. This book is about an issue that haunts America and the world—a vitally important topic. The subject matter is nothing short of pure evil—and how do we defeat it.”
– Luis Urrea, 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist for nonfiction and member of the Latino Literature Hall of Fame

People are not stirred by sympathy but are moved by empathy. Charles Powell and Dillon Burroughs have given the world an empathetic, verbal photograph of the intolerable and unbelievable dimensions of human slavery in the twenty-first century.  Not In My Town will shock you out of the complacency of your comfort zone as you read the pitiful plight of 30 million people on planet Earth and realize that America is one of the top three havens in the world for human trafficking. Charles Powell and Dillon Burroughs will make you feel a firestorm of mixed emotions and then it will make you mad; hopefully, mad enough to eliminate the problem!”
Dr. Ronald W Carpenter, Sr., presiding bishop, International Pentecostal Holiness Church

Charles Powell has focused his investigative skills on a scourge too few of us knew existed. The scope of modern-day slavery is mind-boggling, its stories heartbreaking—and there’s a good chance its victims are right in your own backyard! if you don’t believe me, open this book and let Charles and Dillon take you on a tour of the seamy side of America. You’ll never be the same.”
– Nate Larkin, founder of the Samson Society and author of Samson and the Pirate Monks: Calling Men to Authentic Brotherhood

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.

This uncommon setting sent him on his own unique faith journey which continues to shape his writings today.
