Polaris, named after the North Star that guided slaves to freedom in the U.S., disrupts the conditions that allow human trafficking to thrive in our society. From working with government leaders to protect victims’ rights, to building partnerships with the world’s leading technology corporations, we spark long-term change that focuses communities on identifying, reporting and eliminating trafficking networks. Our comprehensive model puts victims at the center of all that we do — helping survivors restore their freedom, preventing more victims, and gathering the data to pursue traffickers wherever they operate.

What They Do…

Client Services: Offering comprehensive clinical social services to victims of all forms of human trafficking through specialized local offices in Washington, D.C. and New Jersey.

Policy Advocacy: Functioning as a central hub of human trafficking legislative expertise while advancing state and federal policy related to the crime of human trafficking on a national scale.

Training and Technical Assistance: Providing lessons learned, promising practices, and counter-trafficking strategies to local, national, and international audiences.

National Human Trafficking Resource Center: Operating the central 24-hour national human trafficking hotline for the United States and connecting professionals, victims, and community members to information and services.

Fellowship Program: Increasing the global fight against trafficking by drawing upon lessons learned from our holistic approach in the United States.

Global Programs: In 2012, Polaris launched Vision 2020 – a bold vision to expand our impact on a global scale.

Fundraise:  The money you raise will allow us to provide social services to human trafficking survivors, to operate the national human trafficking hotline, to improve and push for better implementation of state and federal policies, and much more. While the possibilities are endless, there are a few common and effective ways to raise money. These include hosting a house party or other event, conducting a letter or email campaign, or creating a personal online fundraising page. The common thread between these three ideas is reaching out to your friends, family and colleagues who are in your network.  We have provided information about each of these approaches along with resources and documents to help you
