A blog by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration about justice and peace issues

It has become sadly well documented fact that large sports events tend to increase “opportunities” for the trafficking of human beings, in particular women and girls for sex trafficking.

Check out the two articles below about this important work.
