TALITHA KUM STUDY, PRAYER AND ACTION PACKET:
NEOLIBERALISM AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN A TIME OF COVID
More than one year ago Talitha Kum (the International Network of Consecrated Life Against Human Trafficking) concluded its first General Assembly. The past year was hard due the Covid-19 pandemic. During this time the International Coordination Committee of Talitha Kum tried to respond to the emergencies that have been created by covid-19.
The Talitha Kum International Committee, with great joy, invite Talitha Kum Networks around the world to begin a process of study, reflection, prayer to be carried out together, to try to respond to the three systemic causes that we have identified as the main causes of trafficking in persons.
To be connected with “The Economy of Francesco” and the theme of the 2021 International Day of Prayer against Human Trafficking “An Economy without Trafficking”, the committee has chosen to start with the second priority – the “dominant model of neo-liberal development and unfettered capitalism creates situations of vulnerability that are exploited by recruiters, traffickers, employers and buyers”.
The packet is available on the Talitha Kum website or you can download it by clicking here.
