This month, theNational Association of Women Judges (NAWJ) and Legal Momentum/National Judicial Education Program (NJEP) officially joined the Collaborative. NAWJ has made human trafficking a priority over the past 2 years, and with SJI support, has been able to offer educational programming to their membership on this critical issue. With a recent SJI grant (SJI-13-E-090), NJEP will add a module on human trafficking to it popular course, Intimate Partner Sexual Abuse: Adjudicating This Hidden Dimension of Domestic Violence Cases. This web course has proved to be highly successful, as over 13,000 learners have taken the course. It is available free of charge at www.njep-ipsacourse.org.
SJI appreciates the commitment of NAWJ and Legal Momentum to supporting the state courts on this issue, and commends both organizations for joining the Human Trafficking and the State Courts Collaborative.
