Workshop on Labor Trafficking in the Washington, D.C. Area

WHEN: Monday, October 29th at 7pm
WHERE: Gold Room, St. Jerome Roman Catholic Church

Many victims of labor trafficking go unnoticed every day, and so they do not receive the help they so desperately need.  Labor trafficking could be happening in your own neighborhood.  Perhaps you saw someone today that needed your help while you were at a store or passing a house around the block.  Did you know what signs to look for?  Do you know what to do when you identify an individual in a forced labor situation?  Do you even know what constitutes labor trafficking?

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington and The Human Trafficking Legal Center has developed a workshop to educate members of faith-based communities on the issue of labor trafficking and its prevalence in the Washington, D.C. area.  Hear from a survivor of human trafficking on the warning signs and the most effective ways to help someone in such a situation.  You can play an important role in ending this “shocking offence against human dignity and a grave violation of fundamental human rights” to use the words of Pope Saint John Paul II. 

For any questions or accommodations, please contact the parish office at 301.927.6684.
