First Talitha Kum Asia Policy Conference
ACRATH Members to Attend
Three ACRATH Members, Brianna Lee, Kathy Fagan and Noelene Simmons will attend the first Talitha Kum Asia Policy Conference. Talitha Kum was organized by the UISG (Union of International Superiors General) as an international network of religious against trafficking in persons. The Asian subgroup is having a conference to analyze the implementation of laws and policies to identify issues and gaps; to learn advocacy strategies; and to set future direction for the group. The event (to be held November 10-14 in the Salesian Retreat House in Hua Hin, Thailand) has attracted 45 religious women from 16 Asian countries, who are already involved in counter-trafficking work in their respective regions (which see the highest flow of trafficking in the world).
