Update: The NJCAHT’s 2020 Freedom Gala, with presentation of the NJ Freedom Awards, will be held in May 2021.

The Freedom Gala is a fabulous evening marked with powerful testimonies from human trafficking survivors, a presentation of the NJ Freedom Awards, and a live band. Attendees are treated to hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, buffet dinner and dessert, as well as a “Tricky Tray” raffle and silent auction. Dress code is semi-formal.

The NJ Freedom Awards honor organizations and individuals who are making an exceptional difference in the fight against human trafficking in New Jersey.

Nominations have now closed. Honorees will be announced six weeks before the Freedom Gala (date to be announced).
