Each year, an estimated 17,000 vulnerable men, women and children are trafficked across our borders and then forced into slavery. Many are fleeing terrible situations in their home countries, and come to the United States to find a better life. Unfortunately, the nightmare often begins when they reach our shores.
February 8, the Feastday of St. Josephine Bakhita, is the National Day of Prayer for Survivors and Victims of Human Trafficking. Follow the links below for more information about how you can pray for and support those affected by human trafficking.
