The Congregation of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary takes a stand to ensure respect for human rights by opposing the trafficking of women and children who are sexually exploited and pushed into forced labor.
We will educate ourselves and educate others about the scale, causes and consequences of this abuse, not only where we are sent on mission, but also around the world.
Through our NGO affiliations, the SNJM Justice and Peace Network and our efforts to promote justice, our Congregation, alone and in collaboration with other religious congregations, advocacy groups and non-governmental organizations, will advocate policies and programs that deal with the prevention of such trafficking where we will provide other choices to the women and children that this traffic endangers.
