Trafficking of Person, especially Women and Children
(July 4, 2006)

As an International Congregation of Dominican women, we stand in support of human rights by opposing trafficking of all persons, especially of women and children, for purposes of sexual exploitation and forced labor.

We commit:

To congregation-wide prayer for the end of the grave injustice of trafficking of persons for purposes of sexual exploitation and forced labor.
To educate ourselves and others regarding the magnitude, causes and consequences of this abuse.

To collaborate with advocacy groups (i.e. our Non Governmental Organization affiliations, the Dominican Sisters’ Federation USA, the Dominican Leadership Conference, other religious congregations, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops)

To advocate for policies and programs that address the prevention of trafficking and/or provide alternatives to women and children in danger of being trafficked.

To collaborate in the support of recovery programs for those entrapped, and support healing presence for victims of trafficking.

To use our economic power, our strength as consumers and investors, to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society; a society that works against incentives for trafficking.
