Resource of the Month

Trafficked in the U.S.
Fr. Charles Vijay Kumar, CSsR

Human trafficking exists in the United States, in its cities, its suburbs and its rural communities. Its victims are not only women, not only poor, and not only from overseas. Its victims are not always forced. Its victims often do not attempt to seek help when in public. This documentary uncovers the hidden crime of human trafficking. It is poignantly told by victims, their parents, law enforcement officials, and social workers. Filmed by Fr. Charles Vijay Kumar, CSsR, this pastoral documentary is perfect as an educational tool for adolescents and teens so they can identify signs of potential exploitation, and know who can help them if exploitation occurs.
