Womens' Herstory Month: Sex Trafficking of Young Girls in New York City

March 30
5:00 PM — 7:00 PM
Room N452 at 199 Chambers St.

This event will inform students about child trafficking in America through a documentary screening of child prostitutes in New York City.

Many of these girls have been faced with the possibility of jail time but through the non-for-profit organization called GEMS (Girls Educational & Mentoring Services), founded by an ex-child prostitute, many of these girls have the opportunity to build their lives again.

It is the only organization in NY state for young women ages 12-24 who have been sexually exploited that assists them in finding jobs, receive therapy and counseling sessions, are encouraged to go to school, and find a home for themselves, rather than face jail time.

Sponsor: Yandeli Cabrera, BMCC Student; Judith Anderson, Ethnic Studies
