NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- Grace Farms Foundation in New Canaan will inaugurate its Justice Initiative by organizing a two-day workshop aimed at combating child sex trafficking and gender-based violence.

The workhop aims to create synergies across the private and public sectors and to activate community groups to develop comprehensive long-term strategies and partnerships to combat these problems.

Convening on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 5 and 6, from 8:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m., the workshop will address the three key areas of the foundation’s Justice Initiative to create a multidisciplinary model focused on disrupting and eradicating child exploitation: awareness and prevention; investigation and prosecution; and victim services.

Over the two days, the workshop will progress from discussing the issue on an international level to the national and local levels.

Open to the public, the workshop will be held at Grace Farms, the new center for nature, arts, community, justice and faith in New Canaan.
