Children & Youth

Children and youth victims of human trafficking face severe negative effects. Polaris acts to ensure trafficked youth receive the services they need to recover. 

Global Safety Net

Human traffickers operate across borders, and Polaris helps agencies develop cross-border collaborations to combat trafficking and strengthen aid for survivors. 

Survivor Support

Survivors of trafficking face significant challenges in accessing services they desperately need - including housing, counseling, and medical care.

More Initiatives


Hotels are a common venue for sex trafficking and labor trafficking exists in the industry’s work force and supply chain.

Temporary Visas

Many victims of labor trafficking enter the U.S. with temporary visas, but are tricked or forced into horrendous conditions.

Sales Crews

Labor trafficking has been left unchecked in the traveling sales crews industry. Workers need protection from ongoing abuses.

Illicit Massage Businesses

We are building support for survivors and ending human trafficking in these venues that are disguised as legitimate businesses.

Sex Trafficking from Mexico

We are analyzing trafficking networks that target Mexican women, while bolstering services for victims on both sides of the border.

Supply Chains

Ensuring transparent supply chains is the first step to eradicating goods and services made by forced labor from our marketplaces.
