The Education Committee of the Catholic Network to End Human Trafficking (CNEHT) is finalizing plans for its preconference workshop on Human Trafficking. The workshop will take place at the National Conference on Catholic Youth Ministry (NCCYM) that will be held in conjunction with this year’s Faith Formation Conference in December. The workshop, entitled “Human Trafficking: Modern Day Slavery,” will take place on Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to noon at the San Jose Convention Center.

The session will educate participants on the reality of human trafficking in our country and provide resources and ideas on how ministry leaders can help end this tragedy. Sister Marilyn Wilson will facilitate the workshop along with Joaquin Schmidt from Bellarmine Preparatory High School. Other student participants include Dasol Kim and Vedya Konda from Archbishop Mitty High School. Mikaela Fenton and Caroline Chmielowski-Anders from Notre Dame High School will present an overview and video footage from their Senior Service Learning Project on Human Trafficking.

The workshop will include videos, speakers, resources and an exhibit table. The “Input on Actions” section will include tips on conscious buying, advocacy, social media and the role of communication. There will also be time for small group sharing, break out sessions, and a question-and-answer period.

This is the time and place to find out all the answers to your human trafficking questions. Whether you are a student, youth minister, parish leader or just an interested individual, plan to attend this informative workshop to learn how you can get involved, and get your students and parishes involved, in the fight against modern slavery.
