Sisters Advocating Globally

Sisters Advocating Globally


Sisters Advocating Globally is inspired by the encyclicals of Pope Francis: Evangelii Gaudium (2013), Laudato Si’ (2015), Gaudete et Exsultate (2018) and Fratelli Tutti (2020). This is our response to Pope Francis’ invitation, when he said: "Let us return to promoting the good, for ourselves and for the whole human family, and thus advance together towards an authentic and integral growth" (Fratelli Tutti n. 113).



We are your Sisters. We are committed to advocating for you and together with you, sharing a journey of care for people and the environment. We believe in a world where everyone experiences a sense of human dignity. We build our mission on evidence from our work on the ground, inspired by our reflection on the Gospel message, the Church’s social teaching and the leadership of Pope Francis.
