Susan Stern

Immediate Past Chair, The President’s Advisory Council on Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships

Susan Stern

A national community leader, Susan Stern has ignited communities of faith to take action to end modern-day slavery across the country. Incoming national Vice Chair of the Board of the Jewish Federations of North America, she presently serves as the Chair of Global Programs for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, as well as Chair of the New York State Commission on National and Community Service. Under her leadership, the President’s Advisory Council called on faith and community leaders to be the voice for those whose cries are not heard and who cannot speak for themselves.

“Trafficking is a very lucrative business of high profits and low risk. We need to create a paradigm shift making it low profit and very high risk.”
