IBVM Stance on Human Trafficking

As members of the IBVM, an international and multi-cultural congregation of women religious, we pledge to work for the eradication of all forms of human trafficking and its causes, particularly among women and children, wherever we live and minister.

Jean Okroi, IBVM
, has had a single justice passion since 2009 – human trafficking.  Since then, she has been learning, advocating, raising awareness of this heinous crime and assisting survivors.  She initiated the Illinois Women Religious against Human Trafficking (now known as Human Trafficking Collaborative.IL).  This collaborative committee of women religious and lay members work together to bring about change in understanding the world of human trafficking that exists in the United States today.  Follow Sr. Jean and Human Trafficking Collaborative.IL on Facebook.
