Trafficking In America Conference Report

A Rainbow of Promise on Closing Day of 2014 TIATF Conference – Restoring Humanity From Modern Slavery

By Yvonne Williams, President, TIATF
(Reprint by permission)

Each year after the conference, I take time to write a report and send it to conference attendees. This year I want to send it across the country to inspire others to take up the cause of addressing human trafficking in their area of the USA. The report is 28 pages and is extremely thorough. Here is a recap.

Trafficking In America Task Force, Inc. coordinated its 4th National Trafficking In America Conference in West Palm Beach, FL with the first day beginning at 9:00 am Wednesday, July 16th and ending at 5:45 on Friday, July 18th. 360 attendees (including volunteers and vendors) gathered around the theme of this year’s event of Restoring Humanity From Modern Day Slavery and to learn more about the issues that are fueling human trafficking. The photo was taken behind the hotel at the end of the day just after the 4th National TIA Conference ended. It is a testament to me that the hand of our Creator was with us and goes with us as we continue to bring restoration to humanity to end this tragedy.

And our annual TIATF Tear Drop Awards Luncheon was a real smash. Award recipients this year are: Jerome Elam (Award of Courage – Survivor – pictured with award sponsor, the National Council of Jewish Women); Kylla Leeburg and Truckers Against Trafficking (Award of Service); Korena Johnson (Award of Promise – Youth); Linda Dixon (Award of Leadership and Pioneering – Department of Defense); Bonnie Jo Daniel (South Florida Abolitionist of the Year); and Bishop (Award of Valor for rescue efforts).

It is our hope that this report not only enables us all to move forward in our own visions but will serve as a catalyst to launch us all into the next phase of truly making a difference in the lives of all those affected by human trafficking. We thank you, we honor you, and we value you!

Thank you everyone for participating in Great Give! We did raise some funds, but just as important, we raised a lot of awareness for the Kids Community Closet program. Your contributions will be matched and multiplied by the many donors around Palm Beach County who loved our program and chose to “give” during this event.

NCJW Supports our Troops

Thanks, Villaggio! The National Council of Jewish Women’s Troop Support project for 2014 was a huge success. Because of the generosity of the Villaggio community, we were able to fill 126 boxes with snack foods and toiletries for our troops in Afghanistan.

Thanks to all who generously donated items or money for this effort, and thanks to Villaggio ORT, Villaggio Hadassah, and the Villaggio Knitting Club.  A big thank you to Publix Supermarkets, Winn-Dixie Supermarkets, Walgreens, CVS, and Strathmore Bagels.  Special thanks to the wonderful “packing crew”. They are:  Marty Eisman, Mike Michelson, Stan Winnick, Sandy Winnick, Gail Siegel, Gary Siegel, Lynne Eisman, Andrea Schoen, Carl Rizzuto, Barbara Geftman, Maxine Rizzuto, Terry Finn, Marty Solomon, Steve Finn, Felice Solomon, Brenda Gropper, Phyllis Margolin, Barbara Speigel, Libby Usilaner, Anne Best, Marty Gorbaty.

Our troops really appreciate receiving packages from home–they know we haven’t forgotten them.

Thank you for your support.

Dianne Gorbaty
