Are you familiar with the Bakhita Initiative?

The Bakhita Initiative: U.S. Catholic Sisters United Against Human Trafficking is a project that provides women religious with resources, ministry opportunities and ideas for strengthening anti-trafficking efforts.  Visit the website here.  It is a work in progress, so be sure to check back frequently.

(The site is named for St. Josephine Bakhita, a Sudanese slave turned nun who was kidnapped and sold into slavery at age 7.  Click here to read more about her and why the Bakhita Initiative is named for her.)
