Community Foundation of New Jersey

Help Us Stop Human Trafficking

January 27, 2014

This past weekend, hundreds of volunteers from across New Jersey – including many from the Community Foundation – worked to prepare hotels in the vicinity of the Meadowlands to stop human trafficking and forced prositution during the Super Bowl. But there’s still ways you can help leading up to and after the big game.

If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, be sure to let your friends know about this important issue. You can share this or any of our other articles on human trafficking (available here, here, and here), but just be sure to use the hashtags #HTChallenge and #SuperBowl.

If you’d like to contribute to this important work, please contact Hans Dekker at 973-267-5533 or hdekker@cfnj.org.

But most of all, always be on the lookout for suspicious behavior.  If you think you’ve witnessed any type of human trafficking, contact law enforcement and/or the National Human Trafficking hotline (888-373-7888).  The National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) is a national, toll-free hotline, available to answer calls and texts from anywhere in the country, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year.
