State severs ties with group after leader argued for legal prostitution
MANCHESTER — The New Hampshire Human Trafficking Collaborative Task Force severed its partnership with its grant administrator, leading to the firing of a project director who advocated the legalization of prostitution.
Acting U.S. Attorney John Farley made the announcement Friday afternoon that the task force was dissolving this relationship and looking for a new group to take over the $1.3 million federal grant.
“The Task Force appreciates the efforts of Give Way to Freedom in helping to secure the federal grant and its dedication to helping human trafficking victims,” Farley said in a statement.
Manchester Deputy Police Chief Carlo Capano said it’s unclear how long it will take to name a new group and fill the position.
The New Hampshire Union Leader first reported the program’s director, Kate D’Adamo, had presented arguments in favor of decriminalizing prostitution.
