Human Trafficking Focus of Workshop in Argentina

Human Trafficking Focus of Workshop in Argentina

“Broken for You,” a campaign against human trafficking which is being developed by the World Communion of Reformed Churches’ Justice Network took another step forward at a meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina, January 29-31, 2014.

A small group of Justice Network members met with CAREF (Comisión de Apoyo a Refugiados y Migrantes), an ecumenical organization that works with migrants, refugees, and exiles.

Officials of CAREF shared their 15 years of experience on diverse aspects of human trafficking (including sensitizing, prevention, and victim assistance) and its links with international migration, and sexual and labour exploitation.

The exchange contributed to the WCRC’s upcoming “Broken for You” campaign, which will be launched later this year for use during Lent in 2015. The group developed a concept paper which will help guide the creation of the campaign.

The group was hosted by Iglesia Evangélica del Río de la Plata, a member of both the WCRC and CAREF.
