In 2017 we celebrated the 10 year anniversary of the creation of the National Human Trafficking Hotline.
Ten years ago, we knew that human trafficking was a pervasive problem, but were struggling with how to fight it due to the underground nature of the crime. Now, we’re using Hotline data to pinpoint the most effective ways to disrupt trafficking at the root and help survivors restore their freedom.

About Polaris : Polaris is leading a data-driven social justice movement to fight sex and labor trafficking at the massive scale of the problem – 25 million people worldwide deprived of the freedom to choose how they live and work. For more than a decade, Polaris has assisted thousands of victims and survivors through the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline, helped ensure countless traffickers were held accountable and built the largest known U.S. data set on actual trafficking experiences. With the guidance of survivors, we use that data to improve the way trafficking is identified, how victims and survivors are assisted, and how communities, businesses and governments can prevent human trafficking by transforming the underlying inequities and oppressions that make it possible.
