Facing the Monster - How One Person Can Fight Child Slavery

On October 18, 2014, the Sisters of Saint Francis Advocacy Group will be presenting a symposium on Human Trafficking at Our Lady of Angels Convent in Aston, PA. To register for the symposium call 610-558-5309 or send an email to osfadvoacypj19014@yahoo.com on or before October 4, 2014. You can find more information about the human trafficking symposium and the threat posed by human trafficking in the group's updated brochure, which is available for free download at http://bit.ly/ZigW8M.

Trafficking can happen anywhere, including right here in Pennsylvania. PathWays PA provides a residential facility in West Philadelphia for teen girls (age 13-17) who have run away or are homeless (or are at risk of becoming so). This program helps girls escape trafficking or situations that can put them in danger. An after-school drop-in program for residents and non-residents is now available from 4-7 pm Tuesdays and Thursdays. To learn more about this program, please contact the Basic Center at 215-397-4287.
