Human Trafficking Resources

Human Trafficking Toolkit prepared for Wisconsin Parishes

The national Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) resolved in 2001 and in 2012 to end human trafficking through education and action. In Wisconsin, sisters are fulfilling this commitment by:

1. preparing a parish-based toolkit to be used in adult faith formation, social concerns groups and interfaith dialogues, to name a few, and 

2. promoting the national hotline number on billboards and buses in Milwaukee, Oshkosh and Green Bay -- a known human trafficking route between Chicago and the Twin Cities.

FSPA supports LCWR's efforts. The complete toolkit is available on our task force partner's site, Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross. Wisconsin parishes received these toolkits in 2016.
