MAC recognizes the urgent need for increased awareness about trafficking of human beings, and about the economic and sexual exploitation of vulnerable people in Montana and around the world. Our faith teaches that everyone is a Beloved Child of God. Human trafficking does not honor that reality. We challenge our leaders to provide effective enforcement against human traffickers and smugglers, and the defense and protection of victims of such crimes. We encourage full transparency so that the funders of human trafficking and exploitation be known and held accountable. MAC has taken active steps against human trafficking in the past and celebrates the recent passage of "Hanna's Act" HB 21.
