Stolen Lives

“No one shall be held in slavery or servitude.” We all believe this, don’t we? But, do we believe that 17,500 human beings are enslaved in the USA each year?

700,000 to 2,000,000 women and children are trafficked throughout the world each year. It seems unbelievable, doesn’t it? In Stolen Lives Regained survivors tell their story. We hear and see them because now they are free and safe from their masters and want to help others from this same fate. In this short documentary, Fr. Mike explains the situation here in the states and how CASTLA helps to change this dreadful scene. The staff of the Coalition Against Slavery and Trafficking, Los Angeles (CASTLA) talks about their work and gives direction of what to do if you suspect someone is enslaved. They give clues to look for that will help to determine if it is something that needs reporting.

Fr. Mike ends by saying “Knowledge is power. Educate yourself.”
