What to Look for and Whom to Tell
Sexual Exploitation and Human Trafficking is a $150 billion worldwide industry that NYS is making progress in trying to stop. The Trafficking Victims Protection and Justice Act was passed by the NYS legislators on March 16, 2015. The US Congress has also passed an anti trafficking bill, but…..
this $150 Billion industry is thriving here in NYC and around the world, trapping unsuspecting children, women and men into a life from which it is almost impossible to escape.
Newsweek’s February 13, 2015 cover “Sex Slaves in America” identified Queens, NY as the Sex Trafficking Capital of the Northeast!
On May 11 and 12, 2015, the NY Times ran a series of articles about the slave-like treatment of nail salon workers.
We are proud that EPW-NYC has been working with like-minded women’s organizations and legislators to stop this inhumane behavior. What can you do to stop this?
We invite you to join us at:
EPW-NYC’s September 29, 2015 meeting
6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
“Sex Trafficking and Modern Day Human Slavery –
What can you do to help prevent and stop this from happening.”
