Anti-Human Trafficking Signs in Local Buses


As members of UNANIMA, an NGO comprised of 19 congregations of women religious at the United Nations, the Sisters of St. Agnes actively promoted an end to the demand for sex trafficking. Now, Wisconsin has its own End Demand Campaign launched by Slave Free Madison on January 11th. The Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes printed four different posters about human trafficking that now appear in Fond du Lac's seven buses throughout the month of February and will appear again in January, 2016 (Human Trafficking Awareness Month). Pictured above are two of the signs already in the tracks of the Fond du Lac buses. Awareness is key to ending human trafficking. Many people do not know that human trafficking happens here - in the USA, and yes, in Wisconsin.
