US Catholic Sisters against Human Trafficking (USCSAHT) in cooperation with the Omaha-based public relations firm of Bailey Lauerman is once again sponsoring an anti-trafficking advertisement in airline magazines.

The newest ad exposes the scope of labor trafficking and encourages readers to get involved in stopping the horror of modern-day slavery. They hope to place the advertisement in a number of airline inflight magazines including the December issue of American Airlines’ magazine, American Way.

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. While many find it hard to believe that slavery exists in the United States, Catholic sisters know that it is all too real. They continue to organize to affect the problem at the local, state, national and international level. For more information visit the Bakhita Initiative website.
