NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking Selected for J.Nunez Gallery’s Love Always Collection During January’s Prevention Month
January is recognized by the state and nation as Human Trafficking Prevention Month, so to boost awareness of this human rights abuse that can affect people everywhere including in New Jersey, J. Nunez Gallery has selected the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking (NJCAHT) to spotlight and receive a portion of its profits in January.
Jesus Nunez, who’s gallery is in Millburn, said: “I opened this gallery to inspire. Art is beautiful but good art carries a message. I created the Love Always collection to carry the message of Love. This month it represents the spread of love to those who have been affected by human trafficking.”
The NJCAHT is a 501c3 nonprofit representing over 200 organizations in the state. Executive Director, Kate Lee said: “We’re so grateful to J.Nunez Gallery for highlighting our work during Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Our mission is to raise awareness about human trafficking and then unite NJ communities to work together to end it, since many people don’t realize that trafficking can happen to anyone, US citizen or foreign national, right here in our backyards. Jesus Nunez is helping us live our mission by shining a spotlight on a safety issue that everyone should know about.”
By purchasing a Love Always artwork you will be helping protect children and people who are abused and exploited by human trafficking. J. Nunez Gallery is home to a variety of contemporary artworks, that all play on color, space or texture that delivers an element of surprise to the unexpecting viewer. What makes the Love Always collection unique is that it was made with love, for you to purchase it in love and help spread love for an important cause. Creating a love chain.
The NJCAHT makes free awareness education available via online events and by offering trainings to schools, local groups, healthcare teams and faith-based communities with its Speakers Bureau. Their events in January include a student created event for January 11, which is Human Trafficking Awareness Day, a presentation by Homeland Security on January 18 and an online seminar about the intersection of Child Abuse and Human Trafficking on January 25.
All money raised by the NJCAHT during January goes directly to our survivor support programs.
