Social Justice: Human Trafficking

This past Sunday, Sister Mary Beth Hamm, SSJ gave an informative presentation on Human Trafficking.

Human Trafficking

is defined as:
RECRUITMENT, TRANSPORTATION, TRANSFER, HARBORING, or RECEIPT OF A HUMAN BEING
by means of:
THREAT, COERCION, ABDUCTION, FRAUD, or DECEPTION
for the purpose of:
EXPLOITATION, PROSTITUTION, FORCED LABOR SERVICE, SLAVERY, OR SERVITUDE
Human Trafficking takes 2 Main Forms: Labor Trafficking and Sexual Trafficking
Super Bowl Sunday is the single biggest event related to  Human Trafficking. 3.8 million dollars are spent on 30 seconds of a Superbowl Commercial, while $90 is spent on a HUMAN BEING being trafficked.

What we, as Catholics promoting Social Justice, can do to do help:

1. Become Familiar: watch “White Gold: the True Cost of Cotton”

2. Spread the Word: Using Social Media

3. Volunteer at Dawn’s Place, a Safe House for women in forced prostitution, run by Catholic Charities:

4. Lobby for Legislation of SB 75:
Short Title: An Act amending Titles 18 (Crimes and Offenses) and 42 (Judiciary and Judicial Procedure) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, extensively revising the law on human trafficking in the areas of prosecution, prevention, victim protection, evidentiary confidentiality, limitation of actions and victim impact statements; and making editorial changes
