Happy World Day of Peace!

Join Pope Francis and Partners to Call for Action Against Human Trafficking

Earlier last month, to mark the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, Pope Francis made history by convening world faith leaders to sign a declaration committing to ending slavery by 2020. This built momentum for the anti-trafficking movement leading up to the World Day of Peace (today!), when Pope Francis is focusing his message around the theme “Slaves No More, but Brothers and Sisters.”  The YouTube video provides more information on the declaration.

To take advantage of these focal moments on the issue of human trafficking, the Coalition of Catholic Organizations Against Human Trafficking (CCOAHT), convened by the USCCB, has crafted a set of “New Years’ Resolutions Against Human Trafficking,” a list of actions related to trafficking for the public to commit to as 2015 New Years’ resolutions. CCOAHT invites you and your campus to commit to the resolutions, share them with your students and colleagues, and use #SlavesNoMore to raise awareness for the issue of human trafficking.
