No person should have to endure the trauma associated with being trafficked. This form of modern day slavery is a violation of basic human rights, and preventing it should be a priority for all people. But it's not easy. Traffickers are sophisticated and desperate to protect their highly profitable trade.
Humans Against Trafficking believes that the key to prevention is education; education of the children who are at risk, their parents and other caregivers, and our communities. Working with our partner companies and non-profits, our mission is to reach and educate through the development of technology platforms and large-scale social movements that make it easier for all people to get involved in human trafficking prevention.
