Ending Human Trafficking

This past weekend we acknowledged Elimination of Violence Against Women Day. We honor Sr. Teresita Hinnegan for her work to end exploitation and violence against women. After her retirement from a long career in nursing and midwifery, she established a Center for the Empowerment of Women and Girls in Philadelphia. She is also the co-founder of Dawn's Place, a shelter for domestically trafficked women. Sr. Teresita took her final rest on February 10, 2020.
