Human Traffic Watch

Resources

This is by no-means comprehensive. These are websites and organizations that were helpful starting points for me on my journey to understand and educate myself on modern day slavery and the abolition movement.

  • Not for Sale Campaign – “The Not For Sale Campaign equips and mobilizes Smart Activists to deploy innovative solutions to re-abolish slavery in their own backyards and across the globe.  Together, we can end slavery in our lifetime.”
  • Love146 – “Love 146 Mission: Abolition and Restoration! We combat child sex slavery & exploitation with the unexpected and restore survivors with excellence.”
  • Love146 Slavery Notebook – This is an AWESOME resource for bringing you up to snuff really quickly about the Modern Slave Trade.  Lots of facts and lots of heart with good design.
  • International Labor Rights Forum – ILRF is an advocacy organization dedicated to achieving just and humane treatment for workers worldwide.”
  • International Justice Mission – IJM is a human rights agency that secures justice for victims of slavery, sexual eploitation and other forms of violent oppression.  IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local officials to ensure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to promote functioning public justice systems. 
  • Slavery Footprint – Get an idea of how you are contributing to worldwide enslavement; then figure out how to change your shopping habits and communicate with companies to free slaves.  
  • Shared Hope International SHI has created a grading scale for each U.S. State to determine if they are doing enough to combat trafficking. Click on the link and put in your zip code to find out what grade your state got, and how you can motivate your legislators to create better laws.

  1. Excellent site. Very helpful info. Thanks so much!

  2. Pretty cool list, thank you. I’ve recently come across a campaign by End Human Trafficking now in Washington State and was shocked how big the problem was.

    Their website isn’t as comprehensive as some on your list, but do you mind if I mention them as another good place to check out? (I’ve not added the link, I don’t want to seem to be spamming your blog.)

  3. Awesome, thank you. The link is http://www.endhumantraffickingnow.com/ and they are an initiative from within the business community trying to convince their fellow businesses that modern slavery is not the way to conduct business.

  4. Thank you for posting the Shared Hope Innocence child sex trafficking 2012 report cards. There were 15 states that rasied their grades but no state got an ‘A’. Every state should be a safe place for our children, which is not safe for men who shop for their innoncence. Each and very person can take action in their state by jgoing to http://www.sharedhope.org and just put in your zip code to get a letter and legal brief to send to your own state legislators.
