Dawn's Place two day training

participants at the Dawn's Place hosted two day training on human trafficking at Philadelphia University

On November 17th and 18th, Dawn's Place hosted a two day training on human trafficking at Philadelphia University. It was a very successful and informative event. We had over 60 attendees from the fields of social work, counseling, law, and others. We are so appreciative to Dr. Rebecca Johnson for improving our understanding of trauma focused treatment modalities in approaching women who have been affected by commercial sexual exploitation.

Dawn's Place Community Art Project!

From January through April 2015, Dawn’s Place organized a community art project in support of survivors of human trafficking – our sisters, brothers, neighbors and friends.
More people are trafficked into slavery today than ever before in history. There are 27 million modern-day slaves around the world. Billions of dollars are made on human trafficking victims, many of whom are women and girls.

Paint a face. Support survivors of human trafficking.
We invited the public to paint a face of a woman they love and donate it to “The Face of Dawn’s Place” community art project. Thirty paintings were displayed on April 11, 2015 in Philadelphia’s Love Park with a festive day of music, art and community. A panel of jurors chose one painting that best symbolizes “The Face of Dawn’s Place.” The selected portrait (seen below) was painted by Jude Harzer. The paintings captured the strength, courage, beauty and diversity of the women of Dawn’s Place and were a fitting tribute to survivors of human trafficking, displayed in the heart of downtown Philadelphia.
We thank all the artists who contributed to this project and all the friends of Dawn’s Place who attended Community Art Day in Love Park. We send a special thank you to musician Rosa Diaz and henna artist Korinne Diggs for their contributions to the festivities.
