Assembly Democrats News Release

Vainieri Huttle Announces First Human Trafficking Awareness Day Rally on Steps of Statehouse

Event Sponsored by NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking Will Shine Spotlight on "Modern Day Slavery" that Affects Up to 20 Million Worldwide

(TRENTON) - Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle will join with the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking to host the first Human Trafficking Awareness Day Rally on the steps of the Statehouse this Friday, Jan. 11.

"One of our best defenses against this scourge is awareness," said Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen). "This trade thrives in the shadows, unbeknownst to many, in neighborhoods and businesses right in our own back yards. In addition to toughening our law enforcement approach, we need to educate everyone in order to help rescue the innocent victims of human trafficking, many of whom are women and children. I hope everyone will come out and join us for this event."

The rally will kick off at 11 a.m. on Jan. 11 on the steps of the Statehouse, located at 125 W. State Street, Trenton. Also expected to be in attendance are Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean, Jr., Senator Nellie Pou, human trafficking survivors, and representatives from the Polaris Project.

Quote of the Day

Quote of the day

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop
