Sisters Pauline Legault (left ) and Janice Belanger (right), Sisters of the Assumption and long- time missioners in Recife, Pernambuco , Brazil join other religious and lay women in the fight against human trafficking. On October 23rd, 2013 the Network: A Shout for Life sponsored “Tent Day” throughout the large cities of Brazil. Documentaries were shown and pamphlets distributed to make the general population more aware of the crime of human trafficking. The National Conference of Bishops of Brazil has chosen “Fraternity and Human Trafficking” as next year´s theme for its annual Fraternity Campaign. They hope the campaign will help prevent the increase in human trafficking normally associated with major sporting events such as the World Cup (2014) and the Summer Olympic Games (2016) being hosted by Brazil.
