Pace University | New York, United States | Advancing SDG 5 & UNAI 6
" Through the Millennium Fellowship I have been given an amazing opportunity to work with fellow students who like myself share a passion for advancing my community's development and giving back to society. I have fallen in love with working to help those who are not as fortunate as myself, and am beyond excited for the experiences that lie ahead. It is my goal to make an everlasting positive impact both on my campus and across my community, and I cannot wait to actively engage in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals with my peers of the Millennium Fellowship.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Pace: Building A Safer Westchester
Chloe's Fellowship Project focuses on advancing Sustainable Development Goal 16, which is Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions. This goal is centered around finding ways to ensure each individual citizen lives within a peaceful society, with access to justice, without living in fear of violence or harm. The project is entitled “Project Pace: Building a Safer Westchester”. Chloe will be working to educate the Pace community about the realities of sexual assault, domestic violence, and human trafficking within our area. Chloe will be partnering with The Pace Women’s Justice Center, a local non-profit organization that provides legal services for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Together, they will host a campus-wide virtual presentation educating students and staff about intimate partner violence while clearly defining sexual assault and the varied elements of domestic violence, as well as the resources and recourses available to the Pace community locally and the impact under Title IX. This presentation will be featured in the upcoming Pace University Social Justice Week. It will focus on the promotion of healthy relationships in tandem with the facts about intimate partner violence, and where students who may be victims of these aggressions can go to seek help for themselves or others. The material of this event will centralize around teaching students how to identify and spot the warning signs of unhealthy relationship patterns, in an effort to create a campus culture that values peaceful relationship institutions, and is aware of the justice institutions available for those who need help. Chloe will also be working with the Pace Women’s Justice Center to put together a “Resource Sheet” made available to all Pace students and staff that outlines a list of on-campus and off-campus resources for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence to turn to for help, safety, and legal intervention if necessary.
Chloe will also be partnering with Girls Educational and Mentoring Services (GEMS) to conduct a non-contact and educational Winter Gear donation drive in order to serve local survivors of human trafficking who live within New York City, who do not have access to warm clothes for this upcoming winter season. GEMS is a non-profit organization in New York that is specifically designed to serve young women and girls who have become involved in domestic trafficking and sexual exploitation. Through this drive she will open the eyes of my campus community to the demographics highlighting where and who exactly is affected by New York City’s commercial sexual exploitation industry, and how they can help these victims through their recovery process. The team will be teaming up with this organization to inform the students and staff of Pace about the realities and logistics about human trafficking, and just how close it occurs to home, and what they can do to help combat this issue. The team will be placing winter gear donation boxes across the Pleasantville, Manhattan, and Pace Law School campuses with informative statistics written on them about GEMS and sexual exploitation. Through this event, not only will they be raising awareness about violence in the form of human trafficking in New York, but they will also be providing warm clothes to the girls and young women who have experienced this crime and are in need, in order to ensure them a safe and healthy winter season.
