At Bakhita Law, we are committed to utilizing legal and social services to restore the dignity and provide hope for the future for our clients. We are named after Josephine Bakhita, a young woman who was kipnapped and sold into slavery from the Sudan. She was so traumatized by her suffering that she could not recall her own name.

 

After years of torture, Josephine was taken to Italy, a nation that had outlawed slavery. Thanks to the work of a group of Catholic sisters, who petitioned for her rights, Josephine Bakhita was freed from slavery and able to choose her future. At the end of her life, those who knew her remembered her for her great joy. 

 

It is our goal to make sure our clients have their rights protected so that they too may know the same joy that Josepine Bakhita found in her freedom.
