NYATN celebrates 10 years of providing direct services to almost 1,000 survivors of human trafficking
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.
Families for Freedom had their 5th annual fundraiser on December 2, 2011, at Judson Memorial Church. The New York Anti-Trafficking Network was one of the groups that were honored as part of the New York State Working Group Against Deportation. We provided the working group with a trafficking fact sheet and helped with the letter to Governor Cuomo on Secure Communities. The certificate honors “New York Anti-Trafficking Network for their commitment to immigrant rights and for their support in the fight to keep our families together.” We are grateful to be part of such a great coalition!
