U.S. Catholic Sisters against Human Trafficking (USCSAHT), whose founding was helped to be catalyzed by FADICA, hosted the first-ever hemispheric-wide conference of Talitha Kum anti-trafficking networks on Oct. 24 – 27 in Cleveland, Ohio. Borders Are Not Barriers was a four-day conference that brought together representatives from anti-trafficking networks in North, Central and South America, and the Caribbean, and other experts to build capacity for more effective and coordinated work.
