JLMN Presents Covenant House NJ Response to Trafficking Survivors
January 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Junior League of Montclair-Newark is proud to present a panel discussion with one of the leading anti-human trafficking agencies in New Jersey- Covenant House New Jersey.
Human trafficking is colloquially called “modern-day slavery,” and affects people from all demographics.
As of December 2019, over 247 cases of human trafficking were reported in New Jersey. Sadly, over 1,498 cases of human trafficking have been reported since 2008. Youth, including those under the age of 18 years and young adults (up to age 26 years), are particularly at risk for trafficking in the United States. The risk for homeless youth is even greater.
In a truly dynamic show of love and compassion, Covenant House New Jersey worked tirelessly to create both evidence-based approaches and groundbreaking research around victim identification and survivor support that is now recognized as a best practice in anti-human trafficking work in NJ and beyond.
We invite you to join us on Wednesday, Jan. 20th at 7:30PM for a Zoom Panel discussion to learn more about Covenant House New Jersey’s important and impactful work in response to trafficking survivors.
