ADVOCACY & SOCIAL JUSTICE
Striving to be “the hands and feet of Christ” in every way that I am able, and on behalf of the Saint Francis of Assisi Research Library, I am blessed to be able to pray for, partner with, and financially support a few select organizations that I believe are models of ministry to “the least of these” spoken of in Matthew 25:35-40 – those most marginalized in our communities by the social injustices of our modern world. Franciscan Peacemakers is one such mission of mercy. ~ Brother Allen, OSF
HUMAN SEX TRAFFICKING
“We work for an end to human sex trafficking through service and advocacy because we believe that everyone is created
to enjoy peace and all good.“
A multifaceted ministry based in Milwaukee, WI, the mission of Franciscan Peacemakers is to support the needs of women survivors of sexual exploitation by engaging in outreach on the street, providing a safe space for women in need of hospitality, giving access to resident-based trauma care at the Clare Community, and offering the opportunity for work while learning skills in manufacturing, packaging, marketing, sales and administration.
The Saint Francis of Assisi Research Library is proud to partner with Franciscan Peacemakers and encourages your support of their ministry to women survivors by your purchase of their all-natural, handmade bath and body products, as well as other unique merchandise offered in their social enterprise and online retail shop.
