On October 2, Sr. Margaret Kruse went to St. Peter Parish in Slinger, Wisconsin, to give a presentation on human trafficking. This was part of the parish adult education program. Between 25 and 30 people were in attendance, and Sr. Margaret noted that here was great interest in learning more about this issue. Some had exposure to trafficking, but were very curious about what is happening now in Milwaukee and the surrounding area.
All the parishes in Wisconsin received a Toolkit last November, so interested persons can request information or a human trafficking presentation at a local parish. The kit includes a DVD – “Chosen,” a sheet on human trafficking resources for Wisconsin parishes, statistics on sex trafficking and labor trafficking, business cards with a hotline number, a business card listing the “red flag” signs of trafficking, and a flash drive containing a presentation on trafficking.
