You know as well as I do that in the fight to end modern slavery, it’s easy to keep your head down and forget to celebrate victories. The scope of the crime, the hidden nature of its networks, and the levels of exploitation can at times feel overwhelming.
But every day, Polaris takes real, amazing steps towards ending trafficking and restoring freedom to survivors. This year alone, we’ve supported nearly 2,000 survivors of human trafficking. We’ve gathered and analyzed even more data to disrupt trafficking networks. And we’ve collaborated with local organizations to ensure that the most vulnerable populations receive more tailored support.
As the new year approaches, I invite you to take a look back and watch the above video to see what you’ve helped make possible in just the past twelve months.
We wanted to share this progress with you because it’s yours to celebrate too. Without you, the work we do simply wouldn’t be possible.
Here’s to the victories,
Polaris is a leader in the global fight to eradicate modern slavery. Named after the North Star that guided slaves to freedom in the U.S., Polaris systemically disrupts the human trafficking networks that rob human beings of their lives and their freedom. Our comprehensive model puts victims at the center of what we do – helping survivors restore their freedom, preventing more victims, and leveraging data and technology to pursue traffickers wherever they operate.
