Justice and Peace Links—Human trafficking

Of all the evils that violate the humanity of millions of men, women and children, surely modern day slavery (human trafficking) is the most abhorrent. This issue of Justice and Peace Links includes reflections from two Presbyterian women on human trafficking—on the scope of trafficking nationally and internationally, and on what we can do to end human trafficking. This resource also highlights Presbyterian resolutions and statements on human trafficking, as well as biblical passages that include slavery and its accompanying power dynamics.

Links is the electronic newsletter of Presbyterian Women’s Justice and Peace Committee. Each issue explores a topic of justice and peace and offers suggestions for how to be involved and advocate on the topic.

  1. I am very interested in this human trafficing situation,it pulls at my heart strings because of the injustice of this offense. I am the moderator of the Presbyterian Women of the Presbytery in Albany, NY we have Spring and Fall gatherings every year. In November of this year we were going to have a speaker speaking about this issue,but huricane Sandy happened, and the speaker could not come. Is there a locat person in Albany, NY that would be able to speak about this subject at one of our gatherings. Blessings and Peace, Jo-Ann Baccari

  4. This is a good thing to make others aware of the problem. I have been alert since my attendance at a national gathering going to a workshop over 20 years ago. Good for you!
