World Day Against Trafficking in Persons is a day of significance to the School Sisters of Notre Dame. Each year, the United Nations sets aside one day to “raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights.” This day reminds us that human traffickers prey on the most desperate and vulnerable. To end this inhumane practice, it is especially important to shield migrants and refugees – and particularly young people, women and children – so that they may have a safer and more dignified future.
