DHS Center for Countering Human Trafficking Releases FY22 Annual Report

April 06, 2023
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

As a global leader in the fight against human trafficking, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security works to end sex trafficking and forced labor through a wide range of efforts including victim identification and assistance, criminal investigations, civil enforcement actions, intelligence and analysis, training and public education, and external outreach.

On March 28, 2023, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released the second Center for Countering Human Trafficking (CCHT) Annual Report, outlining the Department’s achievements in combatting human trafficking during the previous fiscal year (FY).

The Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes stands in solidarity with the victims of human trafficking and took a corporate stance against the trafficking of women and children for sexual exploitation in January 2007. The CSA Associate Community affirmed this stance in November 2022. We find the DHS report encouraging in that combating trafficking is a top priority of theirs. We hope all will take some time to review the findings in this 26-page report.

Sisters and staff at the Motherhouse and Nazareth Court and Center participated in #WearBlueDay 1/11/23 to help bring awareness to human trafficking.
