Human trafficking

Resolution:

 

WUCWO, its member organizations and its representatives at international fora will work, individually and in network with other confessional and non-confessional related organizations, to:

a) help families, schools, Church and the community to become aware of human trafficking in order to prevent it;
b) accompany and work for the recovery and the social inclusion of the victims;
c) denounce and act against the structures that reduce people to the status of an object; 
d) promote and demand the responsibility of the State in relation to the practice of human trafficking with different concrete actions such as advocating for legislation that makes the purchase of sexual services a criminal act;
e) provide assistance for victims of sexual violence who are often trafficked, and fight the culture of indifference and impunity.
