NYATN is celebrating 10 years of providing direct services to almost 1,000 survivors of human trafficking.  We are the first in New York to promote the rights of survivors of human trafficking.  We bring together the voices of those with first-hand experience of the injustices of human trafficking, who work consistently to meet the needs of trafficked persons, and who advocate for a more rights-based and responsive policy towards trafficked persons.  Read more highlights about NYATN’s work over the past decade.  Please join us in honoring our anniversary at our Networking Breakfast in May.
