This is an article from my archdiocese award winning magazine, The Leaven.

I've attached the pdf pages of this article in case the photos below are not legible.

Certain orders of nuns have been battling human trafficking around the world for years and now they wisely see it happening in our country and in our own backyards and in true form are taking action.

The article also contains websites if you seek more information.

The Kansas City Star series on Human Trafficking.

I'm not happy with this series as they didn't show the faces of legal US and Canadian citizens that are human trafficking victims of all ages, gender and race. Instead they just increased the public's view that this happens to illegal aliens - they show the faces as Mexicans and Asian women. Doing that the public thinks so sad and then puts it out of their head. The public needs to see this is happening in their back yards..to their neighbors!

Leave a comment for the team of writers that produced this series and let them know the true faces of human trafficking: http://www.kansascity.com/105/story/1633622.html I left a comment but they deleted it. If more people leave comments they won't be able to delete all of them!
