This Sunday the National Council of Jewish Women, in partnership with Beth Israel Synagogue, will discuss human trafficking. Among the speakers is Kathryn Griffin, a former prostitute herself, and founder of We’ve Been There, Done That, a program she designed to help prevent sex workers and drug addicts from returning to lives of crime.
