Anti-Trafficking Organizations Directory

Anti-Trafficking Organizations Directory

In an effort to bring more unity to the anti-trafficking movement, Freedom4Innocence has started this directory. It is a listing of all the anti-human trafficking organizations that we know about.

Now we need your help to complete it. If you know of any organizations that are working to stop human trafficking, please contact us using the contact form HERE.

Be sure to include the name and web URL of the organization. We will then research the organization and add it to this directory.

Please share this directory with people you know so that they can help aid in this effort.
