Human trafficking, modern slavery—we don’t see it happening, but we see its effects all around us—from the clothes we wear, to the food we eat, and the services we use. Each year, 17,000 vulnerable victims are trafficked across U.S. borders and exploited through forced sex or labor. Find out how the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)’s Migration & Refugee Services is leading efforts here in the U.S. to combat trafficking and restore dignity to its victims through advocacy, awareness raising, training & technical assistance, and integration services.
