The U.S. Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking (USCSAHT) is a collaborative, faith-based national network that offers education,
supports access to survivor services, and engages in advocacy in an effort to eradicate modern-day slavery.
The 'Stop Trafficking' newsletter is an educational service of the USCSAHT and serves as a forum to further awareness, advocacy and action within the anti human trafficking community. However, the USCSAHT does not endorse organizations or activities featured, unless specifically stated.
Websites are provided as resources to explore. 'Stop Trafficking' does not endorse resources, but provides them to its readership.
The Blue Heart represents the sadness of those who are trafficked while reminding us of the cold-heartedness of those who buy and sell fellow human beings. The use of the blue UN color also demonstrates the commitment of the United Nations to combating this crime
against human dignity.
By wearing the Blue Heart you raise awareness of this crime and join the campaign to fight it. Materials and more information on the Blue Heart campaign can be found at: www.unodc.org/blueheart.
