World Day Against Trafficking of Persons
World Day against Trafficking of Persons
July 30, 2020
The world Day against Trafficking of Persons, proclaimed in 2013 by the UN General Assembly to be observed on July 30th each year, has as its purpose to raise awareness about human trafficking the plight of its victims, and the protection of their rights. “Trafficking in persons is a vile crime that feeds on inequalities, instability, and conflict. Human traffickers profit from people’s hopes and despair. They prey on the vulnerable and rob them of their fundamental rights.” (UN General Secretary Antonio Guteres.) It is a crime that exploits women, children and men for numerous purposes. Including forced labor and sex, which occurs across the globe and in our own communities.
Please join the Archdiocesan Office for Catholic Social Justice Ministry on July 30 at 12 Noon to pause and pray for an end to human trafficking. Then look for the release of their awareness presentation on their website http://www.catholicsocialjustice.org/human-trafficking.html
