Anti-Trafficking Action Campaign through February 8

Return to news

A call to take 500 actions against trafficking by February 8 was issued in the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) SNJM newsletter. This campaign is a way to renew the Congregation’s collective stand against human trafficking, adopted in 2004.

The call coincides with Human Trafficking Awareness Month in the United States (January) and will run through to the International Day of Prayer and Reflection on Trafficking on February 8. This day honors St. Josephine Bakhita, patron saint of trafficking survivors.

Actions accessible to all

The actions can take the form of prayer (consult the calendar of suggested prayers –  also available in Spanish), of reading to deepen one’s knowledge on the subject, of demands to the authorities concerned (petition) or in any other way.

To participate in this campaign of 500 Actions Against Trafficking in 20 Days, you just have to record the action(s) you have taken using this form, each time you take action(s) during the next 20 days. Click here to follow the total number of actions taken across the congregation, as we progress towards our goal, in real time.
