Sister of the Divine Savior Jean Schafer was inspired in the late 1990s to inform more people about human trafficking and, after the International Union of Superiors General released its first public declaration calling on religious women to work on behalf of this vulnerable population, she started a monthly newsletter. After 17 years, she is handing it off to two other sisters.
