International Justice Mission continues anti-trafficking work

The conference, which takes place in London on December 5th and 6th is organized by the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales together with the Metropolitan Police Service and the British Home Office.

Pope Francis has sent a message to police chiefs and Church representatives from across the world gathered in London this week for a Conference aimed at developing strategies to combat human trafficking. In his message to participants, the Pope says their efforts to combat trafficking and care for survivors “are especially important because of the hidden nature of this crime.  We must never forget, nor may we ignore, the suffering of so many men, women and children whose human dignity is violated through this exploitation”. 

The London conference comes just 3 days after an unprecedented gathering of faith leaders and other experts with Pope Francis here in the Vatican to sign a joint declaration against modern slavery.
