Human Trafficking: The Hidden Crime

Human Trafficking: The Hidden Crime

Did you know human trafficking is not only in Third World countries and poor neighborhoods? The majority of trafficked children/youth are runaways who feel they have no other options. Victims are forced to work long hours with little to no pay. Monroe Clinic and its sponsor, the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes (CSA), recently teamed up to educate the community about what can be done to stop this hidden crime. For more tools to put a stop to this modern day slavery, visit CSA's website.
