Mercy Investment Services launches human trafficking initiative (Americas)

Imagine being taken to a strange country where your employer requires you to work long hours under threats of deportation, without breaks, and makes you sleep on the floor. Even worse, imagine being held against your will and sexually exploited, as your abductor sells you to any number of the thousands of visitors attending major sporting events or large conferences.

 With more than 12 million human trafficking victims around the world, stories like these are all too common across the globe.

As part of the Sisters of Mercy’s concern for women and children, Mercy Investment Services Saint Louis, Missouri,  has been actively working with corporations to improve their policies and identify human trafficking victims within their industries. As a consumer, you can help Mercy Investment Services have a greater impact on company policy.
