Lessons in Human Trafficking

Lessons in Human Trafficking

Fighting human trafficking in the Midwest

Awareness fosters hope for often-invisible sex-trafficking victims in the Midwest. In the U.S. and around the world, people are held against their will and forced to do sex acts or to work. It is modern-day slavery.

Fighting trafficking across Western Hemisphere

At a Cleveland retreat center, the U.S. Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking network brought together women religious throughout the Western Hemisphere to share best practices in anti-trafficking ministry and to strengthen connections across borders.

Many ways to advocate against trafficking

Human trafficking is a complex tragedy that interconnects with many other social justice issues. None of us can afford to look away or remain silent. 

Protecting Haitian children from trafficking

In Haiti and around the world, children growing up in poverty are especially vulnerable to human trafficking. A shelter near Haiti's border with the Dominican Republic helps protect some of them.

Preventing trafficking of indigenous women

Human trafficking everywhere - including the exploitation of indigenous women in North America - thrives because of demand. Can honest conversations with men about their role make a difference?

Sisters support Nigeria's migrants traumatized by trafficking

Sisters in Nigeria dedicate themselves not only to accompanying trafficking victims as they work to restore their lives, but to stop trafficking through prevention and prosecution efforts.
