Worldwide Directory of Modern Slavery Organizations Launches
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Polaris, the Freedom Fund, the Walk Free Foundation, and partner organizations spanning the globe announced the launch of the Global Modern Slavery Directory today. The Global Modern Slavery Directory is a first-of-its-kind publicly searchable database of over 770 organizations and hotlines working on human trafficking and forced labor. By enabling actors in the anti-human trafficking field to better locate, identify, and connect with each other, the tool will help connect victims of human trafficking and at-risk populations to the help they need.￼
A joint collaboration between Polaris, the Freedom Fund, and the Walk Free Foundation, the Directory enables service providers, law enforcement, policy makers, and advocates to both identify modern slavery organizations in specific countries and determine what services are or are not provided. Mapping verified organizations internationally also enables the Directory to highlight regions and countries where services for victims are lacking or non-existent.
“The Global Modern Slavery Directory is an important new tool in the movement as we strengthen the global safety net for victims and combat this $150 billion criminal industry head-on,” said Bradley Myles, CEO of Polaris. “Polaris is honored to be part of this collaboration between the Freedom Fund, the Walk Free Foundation, and numerous international partners as we work together to ensure victims of human trafficking and modern slavery can get connected to the help they need no matter where they are in the world.”
The Directory, a Clinton Global Initiative 2014 “Commitment to Action,” is the most comprehensive database of modern slavery organizations ever compiled for the public, with more than 120 countries represented.
