BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

An Italian nun who leads the Catholic Church's fight against sexual slavery was in Baton Rouge Wednesday.

Sister Eugenia Bonetti and some of the 200 Catholic nuns who fight against prostitution and slavery met with State Police and legislative leaders to inform them how they can raise awareness and perhaps better document sexual slavery.

"In Louisiana, it is bad because it is hidden," said Sister Eugenia Bonetti. "When it is hidden, you have no statistics. You have no names. You have no ways of realizing where they are, what they do, Who is behind them? So that is why there is great reason to make awareness."

The Sisters of the Consolata Missionary also announced they plan to create a rescue home for victims in the Greater Baton Rouge area.
