There is a small community of Brigidine Sisters living and ministering in USA. Together with them, we give thanks for the work of the US Catholic Sisters Against Trafficking and the various agencies based in USA who work to overcome this exploitation and crimes.
To read the expansive reports about the US Sisters awareness, advocacy and action to end trafficking you are invited to read their May 2021 newsletter: https://sistersagainsttrafficking.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/2021_05_Stop-Trafficking-EN.pdf
