We are the Jewish Community Against Sex Trafficking (JCAST) Chicago.  As the “Jewish Voice” against sex trafficking in the Chicagoland area, one of the keys to our success is strong and strategic leadership. JCAST Chicago is governed by a Steering Committee of dedicated individuals.  Please contact info@jcastchicago.org if you would be interested in serving on the JCAST Chicago Steering Committee or on one of JCAST Chicago’s Action Teams.
