Traffick Proof Our Jewish Community

DID 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.

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. Human trafficking, and especially sex trafficking, is closely tied to our mission of promoting social change and creating positive opportunities for Jewish women and girls. 

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. Rates of human trafficking in Israel are alarmingly high. Due to the clandestine nature of human trafficking, it is impossible to know how many victims are in the country at any given time. However, government sources indicate that over 3,000 women have been trafficked into Israel while most NGOs give a much higher estimate. This is purely unacceptable. Please join with us as we traffick-proof the ATL and Israel.
