Named after the North Star that guided slaves to freedom, Polaris is a leader in the anti-trafficking movement. It deploys a comprehensive approach that pushes for stronger federal laws to combat human trafficking; uses data analysis to identify and disrupt trafficking networks; and serves survivors of both sex and labor trafficking — regardless of citizenship, gender, sexual identity, or age. Polaris has trained more then 75,000 service providers to identify and respond to trafficking in their communities; and has provided direct services to more than 800 survivors of human trafficking. It operates the 24-hour National Human Trafficking Hotline.
We like this organization for its U.S. hotline which has played a role in identifying more than 25,000 trafficking survivors and connecting them to services.
