RWJ Hamilton’s Department of Pastoral Care & Training continues its series of educational opportunities for religious leaders in our community with an introduction to Catholic Charities' Human Trafficking Program.

As many as 20,000+ individuals are trafficked into the U.S. every year. What does this have to do with us as religious leaders?

Once entered into the world of human trafficking, victims can become so indoctrinated that their traffickers can take them out in public, with no one they encounter ever suspecting the terrible truth. Simply removing victims from these crime rings leaves them at risk to be reintroduced into trafficking. Therefore, it is crucial that all varieties of service providers, law enforcement agencies and the public they serve are educated as to the signs of human trafficking and are empowered with the resources to break this cycle!

This program will introduce us to Catholic Charities’ training on a victim-centered and trauma informed care approach to assisting these victims.
