Sign the Petition to Walmart to Protect Seafarers

“The $14 trillion shipping industry, responsible for 90% of world trade, has left in its wake what appears to be a record number of cargo-ship castaways. Abandonment cases are counted when shipowners fail to pay crews two or more months in wages or don’t cover the cost to send crew members home, according to the International Maritime Organization, a United Nations agency.”  The link below is for you to consider signing a petition sponsored by LCWR and the Coalition of Catholic Organizations Against Human Trafficking (CCOAHT)’s petition urging Walmart, one of the world’s largest retailers, to acknowledge their reliance on seafarers for the healthy functioning of their business model, and to show concern for seafarers’ wellbeing by signing the Neptune Declaration.  <—click here to read more about it.
