Trafficking: the Pope and Steve Chalke

I saw in the news that Pope Francis is joining other religious leaders in signing a declaration against human trafficking. This reminded me of British Evangelical Steve Chalke who has been working against trafficking for years ....

Chalke is the founder and chair of Stop the Traffik, a global coalition of over 1600 charities in 97 countries, which works to raise awareness of human trafficking in all countries and communities and to stop the buying and selling of people. He was appointed Special Advisor on Community Action to the United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT), following the coalition's delivery of 1.5 million signatures in support of a global declaration against human trafficking at a UN conference in Vienna in February 2008.
