Jewish Community Against Sex Trafficking (JCAST) Chicago

The Jewish Community Against Sex Trafficking (JCAST) Chicago works to eradicate sex trafficking in the Chicagoland area through public awareness, community engagement, and advocacy at local, state and national levels. Inspired by Jewish values, we partner with interfaith and human rights groups, non-profit organizations, government officials, and law enforcement agencies.

Throughout JCAST Chicago’s five years of building awareness and combating sex trafficking, NCJW’s Trafficked Teens™ have stood alongside JCAST. The Trafficked Teens™ are life size and table top size figurines of teens with stories of how real life teens are caught in sex trafficking. The Trafficked Teens ™ presence builds a stronger understanding of the violence and horror many teens face in the Chicagoland area every day.  For more information on Trafficked Teens ™ email or visit our Trafficked Teens™ webpage.

JCAST Chicago is a program of the National Council of Jewish Women Chicago North Shore. NCJW founded JCAST Chicago in 2014 as part of its commitment to ensuring that everyone can live a life free from coercion, violence and exploitation. For more information on JCAST, visit
