The 10th Annual Human Trafficking Vigil took place on January 7, 2018. The outdoor vigil took place in extreme cold, but that did not hinder the many sisters, associates, and friends who attended. This national day for an end to human trafficking prayer service was hosted by the Boston Unit of the LCWR Anti-Trafficking Coalition. The vigil was coordinated by the Anti-Trafficking Coalition of the Boston Unit of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious.
We, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston, whose mission of unity and reconciliation impels us to promote right relationships, denounce the slavery of human trafficking in all its forms in every place where it exists.
- to educate ourselves and others about the causes, consequences and magnitude of human trafficking
- to work to eliminate the root causes of human trafficking
- to minister to victims of human trafficking in collaboration with others
- to use our strength as consumers and investors to promote a just society that eliminates the incentives for human trafficking
