Study the issues. Be a voice. .

Doctor Sandra Morgan speaking at Priceless Luncheon.

Welcome to the Global Center for Women and Justice (GCWJ) website! We encourage all communities to explore the issues surrounding human trafficking, victim rights, family violence, trauma, evidence-based practices, action research, and more. This is a space where we can study the issues and use our voices to make a difference locally, nationally and globally.
