Human Trafficking & Modern Slavery

Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery  is the third biggest illegal trade world-wide, after the illegal arms trade and illegal drugs.
The Catholic Church has been working with governments, police and church communities around the world to form a global response, called the ’Santa Marta’ Group. A global trade in human suffering which is also local to you. Victims of modern slavery and trafficking are to be found in our rural areas, our country towns, our quiet suburbs, our inner cities, indeed everywhere. This is an issue for all of us wherever we live and work.
You are invited to come to one or other of these two events to be held at St Nicholas of Tolentino Church on Wednesday 6th February.
