Medical Mission Sisters are raising awareness of Human Trafficking at the Democratic National Convention this week in Philadelphia. Sisters Teresita Hinnegan, Sue Sopczynski and others will be distributing information at the Convention Center on Human Trafficking and safe housing for girls and women who have been prostituted. Sister Mary Em McGlone helped with the initial poster art on Human Trafficking on display at bus shelters in Center City; Sister Sue led negotiations for their placement. Sister Teresita states, “If you can raise the awareness enough and get enough people interested, they can work a change in systems that allowed this kind of violence to happen.”
