On Saturday, January 21, 2017, we will unite at the State House in Trenton, New Jersey, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., to participate in the Women's March on NJ rally in solidarity with marchers in Washington, DC at the Women’s March on Washington and at the other 96 sister marches being held across the United State.
For those that cannot make the trip to D.C. or prefer to march in their home state, at this peaceful march, we will unite and empower one another to use our collective, diverse voices to send a clear message that we expect our civil and human rights to be upheld and protected. We will remind those in government that they report to us and that true power is retained by the people.
Women United, Together We Rise!
There is still time to get your official gear until midnight December 29th!
For every shirt sold, Bonfire will donate 100% of the profits to benefit the march! Your contribution helps pay for many expenses including, space rentals, march insurance, portable toilets, signage, etc.

Announcing an intern program for the NJ Coalition on Human Trafficking Awarness. Check HERE for details and link to tell a friend or student about this
As you may know, Morris County NOW was one of the founding members of the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking in 2011. NOW-NJ, Northern NJ NOW, and South Jersey NOW (Alice Paul) quickly followed as members.
An overview of the Coalition’s achievements over the last five years is attached; however, the Coalition has reached a critical point. In order to continue our impressive work, the Coalition needs additional funding. After reading the information below, I hope you will consider making a donation.
Thank you in advance.
Give your SUPPORT to the NJ Coalition, so we can continue to fight human trafficking TOGETHER!
Help Us Unite NJ Communities to End Human Trafficking in New Jersey:
Support the Coalition's Capital Campaign
Human Trafficking is a $32 billion dollar industry and rapidly growing criminal industry second only to drug dealing and equal in scope to arms dealing. It involves the use of force, fraud or coercion for the purpose of sexual exploitation of forced labor. New Jersey is a destination state for Human Trafficking as it is a major national and international transportation hub and a culturally diverse state.
- The average age at which that a child is trafficked is between 11-14
- 83% of sex trafficking victims found within the US are US citizens
- In 2015, an estimated 1 out of 5 endangered runaways reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children were likely child sex trafficking victims.
To end Human Trafficking in New Jersey, the NJ Coalition has been working for the past five years to create a strong abolitionist movement. Through strategic and thoughtful collaboration of more than 135 diverse organizations and hundreds of volunteers around the State, the Coalition is making a difference. However, to keep this momentum going it is a necessity to hire staff and change our financial status to a 501(c)(3) organization.
We need your financial support to help support this important Capital Campaign effort.
The Coalition plays a unique and impactful role in New Jersey linking together government organizations law enforcement, grassroots organizations and those who provide assistance to survivors.
Advocate for and monitor implementation of NJ legislation with elected officials, the NJ Commission on Human Trafficking, and the NJ Human Trafficking Task Force;
Build an abolitionist movement at the grassroots level by partnering with schools, local governments and community agencies on Human Trafficking Awareness Day programs and other public awareness initiatives;
Support survivors by serving as a central connector to those working in the field of Human Trafficking and survivor assistance and;
This year alone we organized prevention programs and raised awareness of THOUSANDS of people in New Jersey, trained middle school and high school teachers, worked with State legislators, and passed an anti-Human Trafficking Resolution at the Mayoral level, and more. We connected grassroots groups to the NJ Commission on Human Trafficking and the Attorney General's Human Trafficking Task Force. Read our Impact Report HERE.
In order to sustain the work needed to make real systemic change we have launched a campaign to raise $130,000 and we need your support. Whether you are able to make a significant gift of $10,000 or more as an individual or organization, or an amount of any size, your gift will be appreciated and will help our Coalition to meet our goals to end this horrible crime taking place in our State.
NJ working together can create a New Jersey Free from Human Trafficking!
