“Journeying in dignity” is the theme of the 9th Edition of the International Day of Prayer and Awareness Against Human Trafficking, celebrated around Feb. 8, 2023.
In 2022, we have experienced major changes as well as the aggravation of crises. In this context, the number of both at-risk groups and people suffering from trafficking violence has increased. We are called to keep hope and the values that guide our being and acting alive. This is the meaning of the theme of the 9th International Day of Prayer, chosen by an international group of young representatives of partner organizations.
“The Power of care – women, economy and human trafficking” is the theme for the 8th International Day of Prayer and Reflection against human trafficking, on the next 8th of February, 2002.
The theme’s choice continues the previous year’s, where we began to reflect on the connection between the economy and human trafficking. The 2022 edition proposes to focus on women. They are, in fact, the most affected by the violence of trafficking. At the same time, they have a fundamental and important role in the process of transforming the economy of exploitation into one of care.
From Oceania to the Americas, we pray online for an “Economy without Trafficking in Persons”.
A message from Pope Francis will be broadcast during the YouTube live. Press release
