Brownieland is proud to have partnered with the Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta and to spotlight the incredible work they do to promote social change and create positive opportunities for Jewish Women and Girls!
Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta (JWFA) is holding an upcoming event, Human Trafficking: A Jewish Issue, where they bring to light information and discussion regarding adolescent human trafficking. For example, currently, 12,400 men in Georgia purchase sex from a minor every month. In Israel, thousands of women are trafficked every day. Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta is chipping away at this issue and engaging in social change by working within the local community, while also supporting anti-trafficking work in Israel.
The event, Human Trafficking: A Jewish Issue, will be held on March 28th and will address the issue of adolescent human trafficking with experts in the field locally, nationally and in Israel. The program includes:
- Lauren Hersh, former prosecutor and national expert on sex trafficking, online safety, and workplace harassment.
- Ouleye Ndoye Warnock, Senior Human Trafficking Fellow for the Office of Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms
- An update about JWFA’s groundbreaking efforts in Israel and recent significant successes in this arena.
Jewish Women’s Fund of Atlanta enriches organizations and communities in serving Jewish women and girls via effective grantmaking, advocacy, and education through a gender lens. Their domestic and international grants provide sustainable benefits to those they serve. JWFA empowers women to be leaders, philanthropists, and decision makers. Through everything they do, JWFA’s mission and core values guide and inform their work.
