April 28th at the Monastery
The Peace and Justice Committee held an evening presentation on the issue of Human Trafficking. The presenter, Sister Ann Redmond, CSJ with Sister Mary White, OSB offer information and stories how this social justice issue is present and growing. They also shared with the group some insight on how they could be involved in solving the issue. The facts presented and the materials were helpful and important for all of us who seek justice and peace.
