Human Trafficking Awareness Three-Part Series
We'll continue our series on Feb. 1 and Feb. 8. We honored National Human Trafficking Awareness Day in January with evening prayer and continue our three-part series. The horrific injustice of human trafficking affects people of any race and background, and we are all called to fight human trafficking wherever it exists.

St. Josephine Bakhita was born in southern Sudan in 1869. As a young girl, she was kidnapped and sold into slavery. She was treated brutally by her captors as she was sold and resold. She did not remember her name; Bakhita, which means “fortunate one,” was the name given to her by her kidnappers.
