Ending Slavery Is Everyone’s Work
In their summer newsletter the US Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking (USCSAHT) outline the activities they have recently been engaged in. Activities included a ten week campaign to build support among Senate women for S. 1968 the Business Supply Chain Transparency on Trafficking and Slavery Act. USCSAHT members sent hundreds of e-mails and made numerous phone calls to Senate offices, urging the women in the Senate to make good on their intention to give priority to legislation addressing human trafficking during the 114th Congress. Attention was focused on S. 1968 because it would require companies to provide consumers with information about their efforts to ensure that its products are free of child labor, forced labor, slavery, and human trafficking. Human trafficking awareness campaigns were also held during the Democratic and Republican National Conventions during the month of July.
