Human Trafficking

The trafficking of human beings, often called modern-day slavery, is a multi-dimensional threat that deprives women, children and men in the United States and around the world of their human rights. Experts say the majority of those in slavery are women and girls. At least one in five victims is subjected to sexual exploitation

A number of Presbyterian Women’s Global Exchanges have raised awareness about human trafficking in various parts of the world. The USA Mission Experience to Appalachia identified the work of On Eagle’s Wings for particular financial support.

Together in Action against Human Trafficking

January 11 is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, and January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Presbyterian Women groups are encouraged to plan and hold events during Together in Action Days Against Human Trafficking—the days leading up to and including Human Trafficking Awareness Day—in order to educate about this form of violence and what can be done to end it.
