What Does The Church Say?

In the eyes of God, each human person, whether girl, boy, woman or man is a free person.”  - Pope Francis

Pope Francis called trafficking a “crime against humanity.” He then urged all people, especially the young, to meet with victims of human trafficking in order to learn about how to fight this scourge of modern-day slavery.

Youth are in “a privileged place to encounter the survivors of human trafficking,” the pope said. “Go to an association close to home, meet them, listen to them.” Change starts with encounter, so “don’t be afraid to encounter them. Open your hearts, let them enter, be ready to change.”
