World Day Against Trafficking In Persons

The Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) Anti-Trafficking Committee have graciously shared the following reflection in connection with the 2nd World Day Against Trafficking In Persons (July 30). This day was designated by the United Nations General Assembly in December 2013.

“Every country must join together to overcome this transnational threat by supporting and protecting victims while pursuing and prosecuting the criminals. On the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, let us resolve to act as one in the name of justice and dignity for all.”

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon
