The work done by the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking is paramount to keep children, women, and men safe from criminals engaged in human trafficking. The organization's advocacy goes above and beyond and the amount of education it offers to the public is truly outstanding. I am very happy to live in a state where such organization exists and trust that they are having an impact every single day.

I came to the NJCAHT wanting to reach out and help victims of human trafficking, but not knowing how to go about it. Through their extensive network of contacts, I was able to find ways to meaningfully contribute. However, I also discovered their many free educational programs, which I’ve used for my own family to learn—particularly my 14 year old daughter—ways to stay safe from predators seeking to traffic unsuspecting individuals.
Can’t say enough good things about this organization!!

I have been an active member of NJCAHT since its inception. Actually, I am a member of three of the founding organizations. As you might be able to tell, I am an active volunteer in many organizations. I have to say that NJCAHT is up there or surpasses many other organizations in accomplishing its goals. It is a pleasure to work for an organization that follows my mantra of "just do it." I was espousing that concept way before Nike, and I still believe in it. From helping to write and pass vital anti human trafficking legislation to supporting survivors and more, NJCAHT surely deserves the title "great nonprofit."

The New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking was formed in 2011 and is made up of over 180 diverse groups in the state, which include nonprofits, faith-based organizations, government agencies, academics, law enforcement, and direct service providers.

The NJCAHT works to serve as the hub of community efforts statewide to increase coordination and visibility of NJ’s commitment to end human trafficking.
The NJCAHT, became a nonprofit 501c3 in November 2016, and is a volunteer-run organization.

MISSION: To Unite NJ Communities to Abolish Human Trafficking

Working with NJ State Legislators, NJCAHT has supported multiple efforts to continually raise the awareness of the NJ population to the Trafficking epidemic and insure that victims get the information they need to get via both the National and NJ Hotlines. Informational posters now appear on the NJ Turnpike and Garden State Parkway rest stops, thanks to the offices of NJ State Senator Troy Singleton. Individual Coalition member organizations distribute hotline posters to retail, commercial and educational locations throughout various NJ counties.
Students from hundreds of high schools participate in spreading information via the Locker Slam initiative. These are brightly colored magnets with various informational sayings that are "slammed" onto locker doors during Advocacy week to spread awareness.
On May 6, 2013, Governor Chris Christie signed the NJ Human Trafficking Prevention, Protection and Treatment Act. Coupled with the measure, the Governor also signed bills designating each January as “Human Trafficking Prevention Month” and January 11th as “Human Trafficking Awareness Day”. Both the day and the month are marked nationally as times of human trafficking awareness.

On November 19, 2015, after working with the Coalition, a resolution was unanimously passed at the NJ League of Municipalities: Urging Local Officials to Provide Leadership in Ending Human Trafficking.
To support the almost 90 municipalities following this resolution, the Coalition produced a COMMUNITY AWARENESS TOOLKIT of ideas and resources.

Our Legislative Priorities for 2020 are:
Posting the National Hotline& Text Numbers in transit spots, bars, massage parlors (S1449/A931)
Expansion of "clean slate" (vacatur) laws (A5085/S3678) for trafficking survivors & creation of a diversion program (Trafficking Court) for victim support
Transportation Training Bill (A5703) so that transportation workers can recognize signs of human trafficking

The NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking is a dynamic collective of sincere and hard-working individuals and groups that pool their energy and resources to inform the public of the pervasiveness of exploitative relationships. The organization also spearheads many creative initiatives throughout the year to engage people of all ages in taking action—at both the grassroots and legislative levels— to recognize and eradicate human trafficking in all its forms. The commitment, drive, and efficiency of the organization's leaders inspire me to continue to advocate for protection from the predatory behaviors that can result in human trafficking and other forms of exploitation.

All NJCHAT volunteers work tirelessly on the issue of human trafficking. Members give freely of their time to give talks to any organization; they hold free events almost every month (sometimes several times in the month) throughout the state and have booths at events such as the NJEA Teacher’s Convention. The various groups within the organization meet numerous times a year via face to face meetings and technological meetings such as Zoom to refine, expand and improve services that are offered by the Coalition. I commend them on the fine work they are doing to help put an end to modern day slavery.

I have been a volunteer with the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking for several years. During that time I have learned a great deal about how to educate the public about this horrific situation, and about how to educate children and parents about how to stay safe and avoid becoming a victim human trafficking.

Interning at this non-profit was inspirational. The NJCAHT showcases what can be done when a group is motivated and determined to raised awareness on an issue. Everyone had been so positive and really listened to one another. The volunteers are dedicated and passionate about the cause. They are determined to ending modern day slavery. I strongly recommend following them on Instagram @NJHumanTrafficking or Facebook @NJCAHT to support their pursuit to end human trafficking.

The NJCAHT has successfully advocated for legislation that supports prevention education and awareness for New Jersey students as well as comprehensive laws that are survivor informed and interdisciplinary in scope. The work of the NJCAHT is supported by members with expertise in education, law, social services, and survivor services. Ending human trafficking is something New Jerseyans can agree on and the NJCAHT is at the forefront of the state's efforts. The coalition is an excellent steward of funds, stretching donations by utilizing highly skilled volunteers for administration and activities. Having a survivor-advocate and consultant on the board ensures efforts are effective and impactful. "A survivor-informed practice acknowledges the unique perspectives of survivors with relevant expertise based on knowledge of their trafficking experiences and challenges they have faced in their efforts to regain and rebuild their lives. A survivor-informed practice includes meaningful input from a diverse community of survivors at all stages of a program or project, including development, implementation and evaluation.” –- (Human Trafficking Leadership Academy, 2017)

I highly recommend this coalition and their efforts to fight human trafficking in the state of NJ. I first volunteered with this group as an active member assisting in events and advocating for HT in my own circle of influence at Zarephath Christian Church, and was impressed by the diligent, purpose driven nature of those in attendance from day 1. I was later involved as a co-chair in a pivotal strategic planning effort launching the group into nonprofit status, and was again impressed at the very high level of engagement of not only the committee but also active members and leaders. Their progress in catalyzing awareness, prevention strategies and advocacy have been consistently exemplary.

In January of 2018, I had the pleasure of interning for this wonderful organization. By doing this, I was able to find my passion for advocating and helping those who do not have a voice. As a group of interns, we created a video on how working professionals are combatting human trafficking in their daily lives. Since then, I have received a scholarship from the coalition in order to continue my studies and help me educate myself on this topic as much as possible. This year, I was lucky to serve as the Assistant Director and Program Developer for the 2019 Internship Program. This opportunity helped me to share my passion with others, and was easily one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever been able to have in my life. Many people are not sure what their purpose in life is, but I am grateful everyday for the coalition to introduce me to my passion for advocacy work.

I worked with the Coalition as an intern for about a month this past December while home from university, and it was an amazing experience! The NJ Coalition is dedicated to spreading awareness about and fighting human trafficking in NJ, and I learned so much more information about the extent of human trafficking in my own communities. All of the Coalition members, as well as Danny, the Coalition's president, were committed to spending their time and resources to devote themselves to such an important cause. As an intern, everyone was willing to help me to learn and grow. Seeing the work that organizations like the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking do give me hope that change can happen in our communities!

I had the fortunate opportunity to be part of the 2019 Intern Class for the NJCAHT and it was, by far, a lasting and memorable experience. The organization is made up of determined and supportive leaders that consistently seek a variety of ways to promote awareness, abolish modern-day slavery, and ensure the safety of New Jersey communities. The level of empathy and compassion the members of the NJCAHT have is amazing and I'd love to continue supporting their mission in the future.

The NJCAHT is an incredible organization that is doing powerful work in the fight against modern slavery. I joined following a Volunteer Orientation in October 2018 and am so thankful I did. I am continually inspired by their work. Its members are passionate, knowledgable and committed. As a newcomer to the group, it is refreshing to feel so welcomed to participate and I am impressed by the Coalition's leadership. They do a wonderful job of aligning volunteers with work or committee memberships that suit their particular expertise and talents. I highly recommend the NJCAHT and would strongly encourage learning more through their website, social media presence, or by attending their next volunteer orientation.

I currently co-chair the NJCAHT Healthcare Committee - a group of passionate individuals representing many different sectors of the healthcare field throughout the State. Together we are educating healthcare providers across the spectrum, from undergrads, to medical students, to healthcare professionals - all critical audiences if we are to increase recognition and referral of HT victims.
The NJCAHT brings together many organizations and individuals to share their passions and experiences in order to abolish HT in NJ. The healthcare committee and its members successfully support these efforts with a specific focus on the healthcare arena.

I have had the pleasure of working with the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking (NJCAHT) for almost a year now, and I continue to be impressed and inspired every day by the dedication of the people I work with – their compassion is only rivaled by their determination – and the impact of the work that they do. It should be noted that NJCAHT is currently an all-volunteer organization, which makes the efforts of all these individuals that much more admirable. Everyone does this work on their own time, in addition to their other responsibilities and endeavors, because they are passionate about preventing people from being trafficked in the future, rescuing people who are being trafficked right now, and supporting people who have been trafficked in the past. As a coalition, the work of this organization intersects with so many other people from various vocations, backgrounds and organizations. People from all different faiths unite as one for the common purpose of abolishing slavery. The work done is on many fronts: raising awareness of the issues, training others to recognize the signs and providing tools to help them, locating victims, supporting survivors by connecting them with resources – including for deep trauma and long-term, ongoing recovery – connecting with communities, making inroads in the areas of education, healthcare, law enforcement and the arts and, of course, legislative advocacy. This list is tip of the iceberg. I would encourage anyone with an interest to inquire and learn more; there are many ways to serve and time commitment can be the minimum amount you can spare. As someone at a recent meeting once said quite eloquently: “When one of us is enslaved, none of us are free.”

Being a part of this organization has changed my life for the better because I am now even more motivated to continue my efforts against human trafficking and to continue my education so that I can provide victims of this crime with counseling and a chance at a better life. I learned so much through the internship I had with this organization and there is still so much more I want to learn so that I can bring awareness of this issue back home to my town and my family. These are just baby steps but I know that with this organization we can spread worldwide awareness and bring about change to such a major issue in this world!

I'm so honored I was able to be an intern in the NJCAHT organization. I came in knowing I wanted to go into law enforcement and become a detective in hopes to join the FBI. During this whole experience I was exposed to the realness of human trafficking and the lack of knowledge people know about it and much less talk about the topic. I've had this growing desire to help people in all different situations, but hearing the life traumas face-to-face of the victims themselves has broaden my horizon and redirected my career path. I'm still pursuing my detective dream job, but plan on specializing in sexual assault victims and that's all thanks to the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking. I could never thank this organization enough for the experiences, knowledge, and new perspective I've gained. Thanks a million!!!

This past winter I had the wonderful opportunity of interning at the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking. This internship not only gave me hands on experience, but it also opened my eyes to a serious issue. A classroom will never be able to amount to what I learned about human trafficking through this internship. Despite the internship being short I was enlightened and empowered the whole time. I am beyond proud of being able to put a production with such great people. Thank you NJ Coalition, for granting me this opportunity.

I first got involved in fighting human trafficking back in 2006, when I started working with the Coalition of Catholic Organizations Against Human Trafficking and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops/Migration and Refugee Services, who then had the contract from the US Department of Health and Human Services to administer grants to service providers nationwide. Since then I have gotten involved locally where I live in the New York metropolitan area, working among other things on a pro bono pilot project with the newly-established New York Human Trafficking Intervention Courts. I got involved with the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking around the time that it helped to draft and pass the then-most comprehensive human trafficking laws in the country. Since then I have become a member of the Steering Committee and the Legislative Committee. This organization is phenomenal. It has over 150 member organizations, works with all levels of local, state, and federal governmental agencies and law making bodies, offers many diverse opportunities for anyone to get involved in fighting human trafficking. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in this field to join us. It is well worth it! We'd love to have you.

Hello I am a Survivor of abuse and human trafficking. Crippled by my fear, shame, trauma and secrets from the past I always prayed for support and a safe place. Although I went to Counseling I felt that it was just as important to have a support group as well as using my experience and trauma from my past to help others and to bring awareness. I felt alone and discouraged until I found the NJ Coalition for Human Trafficking through someone in my church. My prayers were not only answered but they were answered abundantly. I couldn’t believe such a group existed as I began to meet so many amazing and caring individuals that were making a huge difference for a needy and worthy cause. The compassion, gentleness, kindness and understanding I found through the Coalition of HT was beyond something I could ever imagine. The Coalitions understanding, strong desire to want to make a difference in this horrible world of Trafficking is something I didn’t even know existed. Kate Lee along with everyone else who is part of the Coalition have accepted me, brought me hope, encouragement and always looking after my best interest and making me feel safe. I could share with you as a survivor that the NJ Coalitions ongoing mission to make a difference in human trafficking for victims and survivors has brought me much hope and ease knowing how hard they are working to change things. As a Survivor the NJ Coalition of HT has been an intricate part of personally changing my life and I am forever grateful for each and everyone of these beautiful people. I could also speak for countless other survivors who I have met through the NJ Coalitions resources. I have and continue to develope strong relationships, healing and sharing with other survivors on retreats and other workshops that have been invaluable all solely because of the NJ Coalition of human trafficking. I am and will always be forever grateful. Thank you to all who embraced me and other survivors, thank you for being the change and thank you for meeting us where we’re at and constantly working endless hours to make a difference. I honestly never thought there were people who existed that really care not only to accept, love and support us but to work so hard in making changes and bringing awareness. I am humbled and grateful. Thank you all-

The Coalition welcomes students to serve on its five standing committees and runs a special internship program for undergraduate college students during the Winter Break.

I have been a part of this organization for a year and am so impressed with them. I have gone out delivering Soap to hotels in NJ for the SOAP program to help save the lives of trafficked women. They have a group of dedicated individuals and organizations which help get legislation passed to prevent this scourge and help the women in NJ who are sex trafficked. They are also working on understanding and eliminating the products we buy which are made on the backs of human trafficked child laborers. We must support this organization and put an end to Human Trafficking.

I have volunteered with this organization since it first started working to unite communities to end human trafficking in 2011. It has been an inspiration to me, especially because of the diverse groups it brings together with a common goal. It helped to push through the 2013 Human Trafficking Prevention, Protection and Treatment Act and continues to review state laws to be the best they can be at prosecuting traffickers and helping survivors of modern day slavery. It has now become an official 501c3 and has multiple committees working to make an impact in different ways.
