USCSAHT Launches Search for New Executive Director
ST. LOUIS: US Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking, a collaborative, faith-based national network that offers education, supports access to survivor services, and engages in advocacy to eradicate human trafficking, has launched a national search for a new Executive Director.
The ideal candidate will be a person of faith committed to the mission, vision, and values of the organization, and eager to expand its work to eradicate human trafficking and assist survivors. Together with an excellent Board of Directors and professional staff, and with a broad-based community of members, partners, donors, and friends, the Executive Director will lead USCSAHT forward, continuing the rich legacy of Catholic Sisters’ commitment to realizing a world without human trafficking.
USCSAHT is a young, vibrant, and quickly growing nonprofit. It began in April 2013 with a core group of 15 Catholic sisters who anticipated increasing collaboration among women religious and others to better minister to survivors, educate the public, and influence public policy in an effort to end human trafficking. At the initial meeting, which included consultation with national leaders in the field, the group determined to move forward with the creation of an anti-trafficking network.
Since then, this dedicated group of Catholic Sisters has worked hard to reach other like-minded justice-seekers, growing their initial group of 15 to almost 200 members comprised of congregations of Catholic Sisters, diverse coalitions working against human trafficking, and dozens of individuals who share its mission and vision. USCSAHT welcomes everyone to join in the necessary work of eradicating human tracking.
During the search process, operations and programming will continue as normal under the leadership of the current Executive Director who is working closely with the Board of Directors for a smooth transition process.
