Anti Child-Trafficking

Mission Statement


The Temple Social Action Committee has established an initiative to address the issue of modern slavery in the form of trafficking of children for the sex trade. While the team recognizes this is a world-wide concern, the focus of this committee will be Atlanta, Georgia.

Our objectives are to:

  • Create awareness of the issue within the Temple Community and the Atlanta Jewish Community and beyond
  • Build a partnership of synagogues working against human trafficking.
  • Work as part of an interfaith-secular coalition with other human rights groups, government and law enforcement officials who share our commitment and goals.
  • Become a resource center for education on the issues.
  • Participate in and host education opportunities relevant to the issues.
  • Advocate for stronger laws and methods to enforce the laws.
