NYU: New Pilot Program for Anti-Trafficking Survivors

For Survivors of Sex Trafficking, a New Start(-Up) NYU’s Bronfman Center partnered with Restore NYC on a two-week pilot program to equip survivors with entrepreneurial skills.

From the article:

The request to teach entrepreneurship to women who have survived forced commercial sex work came from Restore NYC, one of the nation’s leading nonprofits focused on helping people who have been trafficked. The organization, which offers housing support and economic empowerment programming, was responding to its own survey data: 78 percent of its clients have said they are interested in starting a business.
