The evil of human trafficking is an international, national and local scourge, and a grave violation of the dignity and freedom of all its victims.
Maryland is not immune from the evil of human trafficking. It happens here, both labor trafficking and sex trafficking. Human trafficking rivals the global drug industry in its scope and profits, affecting the lives of countless victims from all over the world.
As people of faith, the grave injustice of human trafficking cries out for a response. As our Maryland bishops remind us: "The Gospel calls us to break this yoke of modern-day slavery by raising awareness about the scope of this problem and doing all that we can as Catholics to recognize, set free, embrace and empower our brothers and sisters who are victims of human trafficking."
