Risen Savior Human Trafficking Committee

Welcome to the Human Trafficking Committee Page! We thank you for taking the time to learn how you can help break the chains that enslave so many of God's children.

Committee Vision & Purpose Statement

We are a group of parishioners dedicated to the call of acknowledging and addressing the issue of human trafficking in our society by:

  • Increasing the awareness of the prevalence of human trafficking in our communities and our society for ourselves and our fellow parishioners.
  • Seeking and implementing sources of education for ourselves and our fellow parishioners regarding the many facets of human trafficking.
  • Supporting agencies actively working for the cause of human trafficking through donation, prayer, and presence.

The Committee typically meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 1-3pm in the Dorothy Day room. We always welcome new members! Fill out the form at the bottom of this page for information.


Upcoming Project:

Risen Savior’s Human Trafficking Committee invites you to bring in-kind donations and gift certificates to assist our community partners, Breaking Free and 180 Degrees Brittany’s Place the weekend of June 22/23, 2024. These organizations are "on the ground" working to prevent and end human trafficking and sexual exploitation as well as provide services to women and teens and their children who are victims and survivors.

We need small items that can fit in a shoe box, like small personal care items, fidgets, puzzles, small journals, washcloths, and more! We would also appreciate gift cards for McDonald’s, Subway, Dollar Store, and Target.

Find the full list of needed items in the link below and in the June 22/23, 2024, bulletin stuffer.
