Sister Anthonia Ugheighele speaks at St. Joseph Academy in Cleveland about the tragedies surrounding human trafficking. Born and raised in Nigeria, she currently works in Italy on behalf of International Partners in Mission.

Thanks for sharing - human trafficking is a plague, 21st century form of slavery - not only sexual (although all too often this is an element) but also for domestic service, industry, farming ... Capture with promises of a good or glamourous job, transport to a different country, confiscate passport, brainwash and/or abuse the victim into total submission, hold threats (what police will do to a person without legal papers, what will be done to the family) over their head .... It is world wide, and needs many people to fight it however they can: speak out, support groups like this who help survivors, call for stronger reactions by Law and Order, campaign for laws and for shelter systems ...

Most of all, build into education programmes the information that children need so they can recognise when approached by traffickers, know how to check whether appealing job offers are genuine - and flag to authorities when traffickers are active

Thanks for posting this. We must not ever forget these women or think that human slavery is no longer occurring in our world.

As a retired former teacher in the Diocese of Cleveland I applaud St Joseph Academy; however it may have been even more beneficial to have included those girls from the diocese that are in the Middle Grades as well. They are at the age when they are most vulnerable .....

This story should be forwarded to Pope Francis. He probably doesn't realize what is going on in his country of Italy and could address sex trafficking not only in Italy but all over the world.
