Take a Stand Against Sex Trafficking with NCJW New York Section and We Were Slaves: The Jewish Community Unites Against Sex Trafficking

NCJW New York Section is proud to be at the helm of We Were Slaves: The Jewish Community Unites Against Sex Trafficking, a multi-organizational anti-sex trafficking initiative. Spearheaded by National Council of Jewish Women New York Section, these organizations have come together to address the critical issue of sex trafficking in the community. We Were Slaves intends to educate, advocate and create a dialogue about the impact sex trafficking has on our community and what we can all do to prevent it.

We have dedicated a series of Shabbat weekends wherein synagogues, Jewish community centers and other communal institutions will come together to learn more about sex trafficking. Using the We Were Slaves toolkit, our Speakers Bureau composed of experts in the field, sermon ideas and various other resources, communities will explore the impact of sex trafficking and discuss what can be done to eliminate this devastating problem.

For more information and to learn how to get involved, visit the We Were Slaves website or call 646.884.9468.
