Sisters around the world have long been at the forefront of social justice work. Here’s a link roundup on some of their recent efforts:

  • Talitha Kum, a network led by sisters via UISG, launched a new anti-trafficking campaign called “Care Against Trafficking” which aims to dismantle the structures which lead to human trafficking. They describe their efforts here, while Crux via Catholic News Service and Vatican News also cover the campaign.
  • Vatican News reports on how a group of sisters, via the Leadership Conference for Consecrated Life in South Africa, organized a day of prayer in response to weeks of looting and unrest
  • The Spiritual Edge podcast recently featured two American sisters – JoAnn Persch, RSM, and Pat Murphy, RSM – and their work to help detained immigrants. Listen to the podcast here.
  • Finally, the Network Lobby released a letter sent to President Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer asking them to pass S.1 (“For the People Act”). Over 3,500 sisters are signatories on the letter. Read Network’s news post about the letter here.
