Feb 8 Day of Action To Stop Human Trafficking

Feb 5th 2016

The US Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking has organized a “Call-In Day” asking you to call your representative and senators in their Washington DC offices on Monday, February 8, 2016.  February 8th is the feast of St. Josephine Bakhita, a survivor of human trafficking and a Catholic sister.

The Sisters' invitation states: “On the day that we commemorate her struggle and triumph, we remember all those caught in slavery and we renew our commitment to abolish all forms of human slavery. We hope to direct thousands of calls to members of Congress asking them to support legislation that moves us closer to ending slave labor.  We are asking members in both houses of Congress to co-sponsor the Business Supply Chain Transparency on Trafficking and Slavery Act of 2015.
