Barry’s CHRSJ was founded in 2015 with a primary aim of advancing trauma-informed approaches to address key social justice issues including human trafficking, sexual violence, and the marginalization of individuals with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities.
The CHRSJ/1HTC team consists of nationally and internationally recognized experts in several areas important to effective anti-trafficking efforts. Collectively, the team has decades of experience training providers and organizations across the U.S. in social justice and human rights oriented approaches to practice with marginalized populations who may be particularly at risk for exploitation. Over the last four years, we have partnered with 50+ organizations across multiple systems to provide education, training, and capacity building to advance trauma-informed, resiliency-focused and culturally relevant services for at risk populations across South Florida.
As Florida continues to be ranked as the third highest trafficking destination in the country, with half of all trafficking victims under the age of 18(FL Dept. of HHS, 2018), our commitment to combating human trafficking is stronger than ever!
