U.N. World Day Against Human Trafficking
Every country must join together to overcome this transnational threat by supporting and protecting victims while pursuing and prosecuting the criminals. On the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, let us resolve to act as one in the name of justice and dignity for all.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
Creator God, you have lovingly made us and have gifted each of us with freedom in knowing that we are your children.
May we respond with mercy and compassion to our sisters and brothers who have lost this freedom through human trafficking.
May our compassion move us to give voice to the voiceless and to work towards changing systems and structures that allow trafficking to exist.
We are thankful for your call to justice, so that all may ‘have life and have it to the full.’(John 10:10) Amen.
