The Catholic Church condemns human trafficking and has developed social service programs to serve and protect its survivors.
In "Migrations: A Sign of the Times," the 2006 annual statement on migration, Pope Benedict XVI deplored the "trafficking of human beings—especially women—which flourishes where opportunities to improve their standard of living or even to survive are limited."
The U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops has extensive information on human trafficking and how you can get involved. Click the button below to visit their website for more information.
