Longueuil, Quebec, Canada – October 28th 2014 - This year, the Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) highlights its 10th anniversary of struggle against human slavery by publishing a retrospective.

10 years of promising actions  
The SNJM's have been acting collectively against human trafficking since 2004 through efforts to educate and raise the awareness of the general public and all those who are involved.

Retrospective available online  
To highlight this anniversary, the SNJM's have introduced a document entitled «A decade of making a difference against human trafficking».
