Corporate Stance Against Human Trafficking

We, the Daughters of Charity of the United States and Canada, in keeping with our conviction regarding the dignity of each person, adopt a united stand in support of human rights and oppose human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploration and forced labor.

We will amplify our opposition to this violation of human dignity by implementing the following interventions:

  • Advocate for policy making which promotes detection and rescue of victims.
  • Endeavor to educate first line healthcare providers to identify signs/symptoms of the trafficked person in order to secure a safe rescue and re-entry.
  • Exercise consumer practices, which are consistent with our commitment to human rights and trafficking prevention measures.
  • Pray for the victims of human trafficking and for those working to help victims rebuild their lives.
