Traffick Proof Our Jewish CommunityDID YOU KNOW? Currently, 12,400 men in Georgia purchase sex from a minor every month. In Israel, thousands of women are trafficked every day. Every human being has the right to make their own decision about their body, life, and future. No one should be forced to work or engage in a sex act against their will. As Jews, it is our duty to eliminate this modern-day slavery. Jewish Women's Fund of Atlanta is chipping away at this issue and engaging in social change by working within our local community, while also supporting anti-trafficking work in Israel.
Approximately 100 adolescent females are sexually exploited each night in Georgia, and adolescent females controlled by the child sex trafficking trade are sexually exploited by an adult male on an average of three times per night. In Israel, there are 30,000 incidents of men purchasing sex each month.
This is purely unacceptable. Please join with us as we traffick-proof the ATL and Israel.
