Our Solution to End Sex Trafficking:

We believe there will be a day when everyone is free. And we know what it takes to get us there. We work with local experts internationally and have identified 11 key issues that need to be addressed for freedom to be a reality.


Awareness
Awareness
Making everyday people aware of the reality of sex trafficking. Turning apathy into passion, activists into abolitionists.

Policy
Policy
Making sex trafficking illegal. Legislation in every nation that condemns sex trafficking and exploitation of human life.

Law Enforcement
Law Enforcement
Enforcing laws that already exist. Protecting victims, prosecuting perpetrators, addressing corruption, and ensuring justice.

Culture
Culture
Addressing the ways exploitation is normalized in our everyday lives. Our words and the way we see the world shapes the way we treat others.

Prevention
Prevention
Building resiliency and decreasing vulnerability. Addressing the forces that cause exploitation and trafficking. Forces like poverty, lack of education, and gender-based violence.

Education
Education
Sex trafficking is a complex issue, but knowledge moves us to a clear, effective, active response.

Demand

Sex buyers fuel the sex trade. Without buyers, there would be no business.

Outreach
Outreach
Individuals trapped in exploitation are often stigmatized and ignored. Outreach involves building relationships and programs to help those who have been exploited find pathways to freedom.

Rescue & Intervention
Rescue & Intervention
Helping a victim of sex trafficking escape or transition from exploitation to freedom.

Victim Services & Aftercare
Victim Services & Aftercare
Recovery, renewal, and revival of the human spirit through physical psychological, and spiritual care. Services and programs that empower victims to become survivors.

Your support fuels a holistic and global solution. When all 11 pillars work together, sex trafficking is abolished, and freedom is made possible for every human, in every place, for every generation. It’s why we believe we can end slavery in our lifetime.

Hello, America!

The urgency to fight human trafficking in the U.S.A. is increasing, and so is our global impact. Our holistic strategy has always been to target regions where the need is most pressing and where your investment could make the greatest difference. When we started nine years ago, Asia was our primary place of focus. And while we’ve been in the U.S. since 2015, we prioritized expansion into Africa, Europe, and Latin America following urgency and need.

Nearly a decade of strategy and your support have led to this moment. This year as we evaluated the U.S., we saw the need to combat trafficking rise like never before— specifically in areas like counter demand or buyer suppression (working with would-be sex buyers to help them make a different choice), aftercare for children, innovative aftercare models, and policy work. Thanks to generous supporters like you showing up in 2020 —we are answering those needs and expanding domestically like never before. These 8 new U.S. partners will not only actively fight human trafficking in North America but become a part of a bigger, global strategy. A strategy interconnected across borders, learning from each other, and getting us closer to a day without slavery.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you on that day.

Meet Our New Local Partners!

In 2021, we nearly doubled our global network—growing by 41%—thanks to generous supporters like you.

Why Local?

The difference between freedom and slavery looks different in every city, and so does how we operate. We work with organizations who understand the vulnerabilities of sex trafficking in their communities best and combat the issue at its source.

We partner with leading experts worldwide who can demonstrate programmatic effectiveness, financial accountability, and an expert-level understanding of slavery. Each organization we welcome into our holistic solution must meet one or more of our eleven strategies to end human trafficking once and for all.

Every day these amazing men and women prevent exploitation, rescue victims, and guide survivors on a path towards restoration across 23 countries. With your support, we empower a global network of Local Partners on a mission to end slavery in our lifetime.

Q
Why do you work with Local Partners?
A
While the fight against human trafficking is a global one, the work of rescue, restoration, and prevention happens locally. By working together, Local Partners and Rescue:Freedom become more effective agents of change.
Q
How do you choose Local Partners?
A
Every Local Partner is carefully vetted: they undergo a thorough financial review, programs are evaluated for effectiveness, and key staff members are interviewed. Slavery continues to evolve, and so we choose Partners who continue to learn.
Q
What does Rescue:Freedom do for local partners?
A
We come alongside Local Partners, listen to what they need, and help provide solutions. We provide financially, equip staff through training, or help troubleshoot business operations. Rescue:Freedom also acts as a connection point between Local Partners. Rather than being alone in the fight against slavery, organizations can learn from one another.
