ANNUAL MEETING OF THE NJ COALITION AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING
June 14, 2018
Report by Virginia Lyttle, AAUW-NJ Representative
Millions of people around the globe are the victims of human trafficking in the form of sex or labor trafficking, human rights violations, etc. AAUW believes that there is a need for national and international policies against human trafficking that promote peace, justice, human rights, sustainable development, and security for all people. The State Policy Sex Trafficking Tool Kit outlines three key state policy priorities — hotline posting requirements, safe harbor laws, and vacatur laws — to identify and combat sex trafficking.
A number of our NJ Branches have been involved in Human Trafficking Awareness Initiatives.

The Freehold Area Branch arranged for their local communities to adopt proclamations regarding the problem, and declare January 11 as Human Trafficking Awareness Day.
