Journeying Together to End Human Trafficking: Compassion in Action for Transformation

Over 200 Talitha Kum delegates representing women and men religious, laity, young people and survivors actively engaged in combating human trafficking will gather for Talitha Kum’s 2nd General Assembly which also marks its 15th anniversary of the organization, since its establishment in 2009 under the International Union of Superiors General (UISG).

The delegates representing Talitha Kum networks located in more than 90 countries will gather at the Fraterna Domus in Sacrofano from 18-24 May 2024.

They will gather to dialogue, listen, discern, and share to continue engaging and strategically tackling this modern-day evil that envelops the globe. In doing so, Talitha Kum members hope to continue to respond to Pope Francis’ call “to take action, to mobilize all our resources in combating trafficking and restoring full dignity to those who have been its victims.” 

The Assembly hopes to make a Final Declaration of what its members stand for, as well as focus points that will help Talitha Kum make further progress and strengthen its networking and collaboration to be implemented from 2025-2030. 

A Closing Plenary session, open to the public, will be held on Wednesday, 22 May. Delegates will gather with invited guests, partner organizations and Ambassadors to the Holy See to provide feedback regarding the Assembly, formally present the Final Declaration and respond to questions. The 15th Anniversary celebration will follow. 

The Assembly will formally close on Thursday, 23 May with a Papal audience, liturgy celebrated by Cardinal Michael Czerny in St Peter’s Basilica, and the Sisters Against Trafficking Award ceremony at the Augustinianum auditorium in Rome. Three sisters will be recognized for  exceptional courage, creativity, collaboration, and achievement in the protection of their communities from human trafficking.
