Religious Networks Against Trafficking

The Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word are proud to belong to national networks of religious life working to end human trafficking and support its survivors. In 2015 we took a Congregational Corporate Stance Against Human Trafficking and since then have joined with hundreds of other religious congregations and organizations to affirm the right and dignity of all people and denounce human trafficking and the social systems that promote it.

In the United States, we are members of US Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking.  USCSAHT posts monthly reflections, prayer resources, and educational resources available for all in the work to end human trafficking.  Learn more and check out their resources here:

In Mexico, we are members of Red Rahamim.  Red Rahamim was formed in 2016 and continues to work to build up its structure and programming and fulfill its mission to witness the values of mercy, compassion and freedom; to prevent trafficking by deepening their understanding and further training; and to care for those most vulnerable to trafficking and to accompany the victims.

In Peru, we are members of Red Kawsay.  Red Kawsay is active in educating others about human trafficking and prevention, and joining together in prayer and demonstration against trafficking.  To read more about their work and access their resources visit their web page here:

International - All of these Networks against trafficking are part of the international network of Consecrated Life against trafficking in persons called: Talitha Kum.  Talitha Kum was formed in 2009 as a joint project of the International Union of Superiors General and the Union of Superiors General to coordinate and strengthen the work to end human trafficking by religious communities and consecrated persons.  You can read more about their mission and work on their website:
