The fight against injustice in different forms, as persecutions because of faith, gender, political believes such as refugees & human trafficking, has very much becomes my passion over the last few years. Catholic Charities of Newark in NJ, and USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops)in Washington, DC. gave me the opportunity to research the Refugee/Human Trafficking patters around the world and also provide services to them throughout the United States.
The purpose of this Web site is to bring Government and NGOs in the United States and around the world together to collaborate with their own experiences in the efforts against human trafficking. This Web site has worldwide-specific information such as United Nations International Protocols, countries legislation and governmental projects to combat human trafficking. It contents contact information on useful governmental agencies. It also has a description of NGO activities in different countries and their contact information.
Due to the nature of this crime, with many undiscovered and unidentified victims there is no way to know the real number of the victims. Consequently,we will need your cooperation to know the true numbers. Moreover, the most important thing is to provide them with a comprehensive assistance program, see Technical Assistance Research.
Through the people I was working with, I saw what exploitation, torture, and lack of freedom looked like, and I was and remain absolutely heart-broken. Therefore, this Anti-Traficking Campaing is directed to raise awareness of moder day- slavery. It intents to connect all those who works combating human trafficking and also support the victims. However,I can not do it without the New Jersey community and not profits organizations commitment. Especially, without the Law Enforcement Agents support.
"There are numerous parallels between writing ideas and the provision of services to the victims, but the most fundamental, I think, is this: that given the opportunities, we all can learn how to do it well"

These are some of the things you can do to help fight human trafficking:
Be informed! Educate yourself about human trafficking by reading about it. Follow events in the news. Keep your eyes open - human trafficking is happening all around us.
Raise awareness! Talk to friends, family and colleagues. You could even start talking to your local politicians and authorities.
Get involved! Participate in an anti-trafficking movement in your area and get involved in its activities and campaigns (e.g. hold events, distribute posters, leaflets etc.) in your neighborhood and in schools.
Encourage businesses! Be a responsible consumer! Inform yourself on the labour policies of companies to ensure their products are free from slave labour and other forms of exploitation. If possible, buy fair trade products.
Seek support! If you suspect that someone has been trafficked report it to the institutions or assistance facilities dealing with human trafficking in your area.
"It ought to concern every person, because it is a debasement of our common humanity. It ought to concern every community, because it tears at our social fabric. It ought to concern every business, because it distorts markets. It ought to concern every nation, because it endangers public health and fuels violence and organized crime. I’m talking about the injustice, the outrage, of human trafficking, which must be called by its true name -- modern slavery."
– President Barack OBAMA
