unnamedThe U.S. Catholic Sisters against Human Trafficking have gotten an ad pro bono from Bailey Lauerman PR firm in Omaha, NE as a way of raising awareness of the staggering numbers of people this issue affects. In hopes that hundreds of thousands of people see the ad, they chose to place it in airline magazines from American and US Airlines.

Human trafficking is modern day slavery. While many find it hard to believe that slavery exists in the United States, Catholic sisters know that it is all too real. They continue to organize to affect the problem at the local, state, national and international level. For more information visit the Bakhita Initiative website.
