The Coalition of Catholic Organizations Against Human Trafficking consists of national and international Catholic agencies working to eliminate the scourge of human trafficking. The main purposes of the Coalition are to:
Formulate plans for combating trafficking and serving its victims
Promote development of services for trafficking victims and approaches to empowerment of trafficking victims
Dialogue with government officials and others engaged in public policies affecting this issue
Devise strategies for public education, awareness-raising and grass roots action.
More than twenty Catholic organizations form the Coalition of Catholic Organizations Against Human Trafficking. Each organization has its own network of concerned citizens who can work together to further the commitment to combat trafficking. Coalition organizations engage in combating human trafficking by
Delivering direct services to adult and child trafficking victims in the U.S. and overseas
Conducting prevention projects overseas, especially in Eastern Europe, India, and Latin America
Providing national training and technical assistance on the issue of trafficking
The Coalition has created two postcards, one addressed to Costco and the other to StarKist, which asks that these companies do all in their power to guarantee that their supply chains are free of forced labor. You can download the postcards here and here, sign your name, and mail into each company.
If your parish, school, or social justice ministry would like printed and stamped versions of the postcards, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
