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 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.
Serving victims and survivors through the 24/7 National Human Trafficking Hotline, coordinating with referral partners nationwide as a national access point for trauma-informed support.
Building one of the largest public data sets on human trafficking in the United States, digging deeper to learn how the business of human trafficking really works, in real time.
Turning knowledge into action, designing targeted strategies that change entire systems tailored to specific sub-types of trafficking and specific industries.
Enlisting law enforcement and other public and private-sector partners, moving those strategies into the real world to support survivors, prevent and disrupt human trafficking at scale.
