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

January 11 is Human Trafficking Day. The U.N. estimates at any one time 2.4 million people are being trafficked. Eighty percent of these victims will be used as sexual slaves. Traffickers earn an estimated $32 billion a year. The average number of rescued victims a year is 100.

FSPA has begun to work on this very important issue, from serving on President Obama’s advisory council to attending the Vatican’s Human Trafficking Workshop. I encourage you to learn more about FSPA’s human trafficking efforts.

To hear from someone working directly on this issue check out the TED talk from Sunitha Krishnan (added above).

And finally, take action!
