Coalesce, which means ‘to unite so as to form one mass, community, etc.,’ is a show that brings two unlikely groups together, an anarchist atheist and an evangelical Christian. The goal is to work on uniting on issues they have in common, in hopes to overcome some of the worlds biggest issues – Human trafficking.
They will challenge each other and their world view, to find a solution that everyone can work with to help free the 2.5 million people who are in forced labor, the sex-slave industry (including sexual exploitation), and all the other levels of human trafficking.
What happens when an evangelical Christian and an anarchist atheist get together to try and solve the world’s problems?
Tune in to find out.
