2021 International day of Prayer against Human Trafficking
The International Day of Prayer and Awareness against human trafficking, February 8th, is less than one month away!
The theme of this edition
The International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking 2021 brings into the spotlight one of the main causes of human trafficking: the dominant economic model of our time, whose limits and contradictions are exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Human trafficking is an integral part of “this economy”: victims of trafficking are as “commodities” falling into the mechanisms of a globalization ruled by financial speculation and competition spurred by below-cost pricing. Hence the need for a “structural and global” perspective of human trafficking so as to dismantle those wicked mechanisms that fuel the supply and demand of “people to exploit”, because the very heart of the economy is sick.
How to partecipate
Due to the COVID19, Talitha Kum/UISG team decided to organize an online Marathon of Prayer on February 8th from 10am to 5pm CET. The Marathon will be attended by all the Talitha Kum networks around the world, divided into different blocks according to the different continents . There will be also a moment of prayer all together at 1pm CET.
The Marathon will be livestreamed on www.youtube.com/c/PreghieraControTratta
