As member organizations of the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking we feel that a public “thank you” is warranted to the Community Relations Committee of the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest.
The CRC has been most generous in providing the Coalition with space for meetings and conferences, printed materials, financial support, and invaluable staff time to assist us.
The director of the CRC, Melanie Roth Gorelick, along with staff members Mara Gellman, Hilary Levine, and student volunteer Natalie Levy, worked with Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle’s staff to make the Human Trafficking Awareness Day event at the Bergen County Performing Arts Center on Jan. 15 a great success.
In addition, we want to thank the New Jersey Jewish News for printing op-ed pieces from the Coalition and for its excellent coverage of our events and coverage in general of the issue of human trafficking.
The evolution of the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking is a perfect example of how a community can unite and work together to confront the abomination that is modern day slavery. As we move closer to the Super Bowl and beyond, the member organizations of the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking will continue to promote and advance a modern abolitionist movement to eliminate human trafficking.
