Michelle Bobrow will inform us about the current resurgence of human trafficking, what it is, how it evolved, who is involved, what to be aware of and what we can do.
Bobrow is a member of the steering committee of the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking (njhumantrafficking.org) and was on the League of Women Voters of NJ’s committee that helped to frame and work for passage of the 2013 omnibus bill in New Jersey to address this issue. She is a long-time Maplewood resident, a leader in the Maplewood-South Orange League of Women Voters and has many volunteer credentials to her name.
The NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking (NJCAHT) was formed in 2011 and is made up of over 170 diverse organizations including nonprofits, law enforcement, educational establishments, faith-based groups and legal advocates. Its purpose is to unite NJ communities to abolish human trafficking.
The NJCAHT became a non-profit 501(c)3 organization in 2016 and currently has 192 volunteers working on committees in areas of their interests and expertise such as Arts, Education, Healthcare, Legislation, Slave-Free Commerce, Speakers Bureau and SOAP (to train volunteers to make hotels and motels aware of missing children in NJ and prevent trafficking happening on their premises). Whatever your interest, you can make an impact on this issue.
As a fully volunteer organization, the NJCAHT welcomes everyone to join the fight against human trafficking — a form of modern day slavery — in New Jersey.
