The Santa Marta Group is an alliance of international police chiefs and bishops from around the world working together with civil society in a process endorsed by Pope Francis, to eradicate human trafficking and modern day slavery. Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Leader of the Santa Marta Group, addressed the UN at a Conference sponsored by the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations.
