1 - Prayer Services to mark International day to end Human Trafficking

This day has been marked on January 11th. However these prayers can be used at any time.


2 - JPIC Working Group on Trafficking in Persons

We are an intercongregational group of religious, living in Rome, who meet on a monthly basis as the USG/UISG Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Commission Anti-Trafficking Working Group.

In 2007 the leadership of USG/UISG signed a joint statement with Caritas Internationalis to work collaboratively in the struggle against human trafficking.

We believe that the unspeakable suffering experienced by women, men and children, who are trafficked for domestic servitude and sexual slavery and any other type of inhuman bondage, will be alleviated as more and more persons of good will become aware of and educated about this 21st century global sin. Groups such as ours provide their respective communities with resources and tools to work against human trafficking.

For more information about our work, read our brochure: (published September 2009)
