We will not be silent

NEW: This year's Day of Prayer for Victims of Human Trafficking will be held on Sunday 27 September – download posters and resources below

The United Nations defines human trafficking as:

'a serious crime and a grave violation of human rights. Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Almost every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims. UNODC, as guardian of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC) and the Protocols thereto, assists States in their efforts to implement the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons (Trafficking in Persons Protocol).' (source)

Though the terminology may be new, human trafficking is not. Examples of human trafficking exist throughout the Bible:
