Human Trafficking

The Diocese of Cleveland has established an Anti-Trafficking Program that aims to educate all those within the realm of our diocese on the scourge of human trafficking as an offense against the fundamental dignity of the human person, to advocate for its end, and to provide training and technical assistance to support survivors.

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. It is the use of force, fraud, or coercion to compel another person to provide labor or sex against their will, and is one of the fastest-growing criminal enterprises in the world. If you are a victim of this horrible crime or suspect someone who is, there is help available.
