January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month

This month is set as a time to bring special attention to the continued injustice of slavery and human trafficking in all their forms. Though illegal in all countries, it is estimated that more than 40 million people are being trafficked. Traffickers make billions of dollars every year. CLICK HERE to visit the Aberdeen Presentation Sisters website to learn more about specific issues surrounding human trafficking.

We also ask that you include the victims of human trafficking in your prayer:  
God of the universe, bless our movement to protect the vulnerable and the unsuspecting from all forms of exploitation, and in particular, from human trafficking. Keep us mindful of your presence in our lives and of our duty to be there for others,  for we are all one. May your will be done. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen
