Member since 2 years
Kathleen T. Moran, RN, BSN
Kathleen has been a registered nurse for over twenty five years. She has served in the New York City area for most of her career.
In 2010 the United Nations Association (Queens NY Chapter) started the Partnership for the Eradication of Human Trafficking (PEHT) committee. Kathleen has been working with members on projects that educate and bring attention to the crime since it’s inception.
Kathleen and PEHT committee members started to collaborate with Maria Almario to develop, The Inclusive Human trafficking Checklist: A Dialectical Methodology for Measurement, in 2013. The tool that aids in the identification of victims of modern day slavery.
Through PEHT Kathleen has moderated panel discussions as well as coordinated events focused on educating the general public about the crime of modern day slavery. Our most recent event in November of 2015, brought together RESTORE, Garden of Hope, and Freedom Ladder to inform people about services and/or ways to prevent young people from falling victim to a potential trafficker. During the same event the The Inclusive Human Trafficking Checklist was utilized to impart knowledge about some of the traits a victim may posses. The aim was to illicit participation in identification of a victim, so that the people can inform the proper authorities to a potential situation.
Kathleen and co-committee member Barbara Felton have been presented with an impact award for their work on com-batting human trafficking and domestic violence.
As of January 2016 Kathleen is now chairperson of PEHT.
She continues to serve the senior population as a nurse through health conversations she conducts throughout Queens.
