On July 30, we will observe the World Day against Trafficking in Persons—a day to recommit ourselves to anti-trafficking efforts, to pray for the 40.3 million trafficking victims, and to honor the survivors of modern-day slavery. The Human Trafficking Committee invites you to read “Human Trafficking and Covid-19 in Marginalized Communities” to learn about the effect of the pandemic at the intersection of race and human trafficking in the United States, and join us in this prayer and action resource by members of our committee.
