With the Super Bowl expected to bring an influx of thousands of people into New Jersey, the state will be at an increased vulnerability to human trafficking. New Jersey is already a prime location for domestic and international human trafficking because of its central location between the New York metropolitan area and the tri-state metropolitan region of Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. It is the most densely populated state in the U.S. and has the third highest proportion of foreign born residents at nearly 20 percent. A panel of experts will discuss Human Trafficking

December 3, 2013   4:00pm  Book Discussion   DESTINED TO WITNESS
Hans J. Massaquoi chronicles his childhood in Hamburg in the 1930's, where he ''fell through the cracks of modern history's . . . most systematic mass-murder scheme.'' The son of an African diplomat and a white German nurse who never married, the young Massaquoi was swept up by Hitler's pageantry and propaganda. 'Destined to Witness'' examines a roller coaster of racism from different cultures and continents.
