USCCB anti-trafficking efforts focus on recent Haitian, Hispanic immigrants
Catholic World News - January 07, 2013
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched the Amistad Movement, a campaign that will “focus on awareness raising, education, and coalition building among communities most vulnerable to exploitation and trafficking -- in particular recent immigrants engaged in industries that are poorly regulated such as agriculture, domestic/in-home care, and hospitality.”
According to a recent USCCB newsletter devoted to efforts against human trafficking, “the first phase of the campaign will target Haitians in South Florida, pockets of indigenous Maya communities around the country, and new Hispanic migrants in the Gulf States.”
