Fight Human Trafficking


So you want to get involved in fighting human trafficking? Prayer is the best place to start, but The Salvation Army and many other organizations offer a myriad of resources. Check out the following websites:


SA Justice Fight for Freedom action plan against human trafficking is an initiative that originated in the Western Territory and has since been adopted by all four territories. Currently we have 43 programs and initiatives to fight human trafficking across the U.S., making The Salvation Army a leading direct services provider in fighting human trafficking in the United States. Please visit our website and social media pages to learn more about how you can get involved in the #FightforFreedom. We address human trafficking holistically through four main goals: Awareness & Training, Prevention & Outreach, Survivor Services & Recovery, and Partnerships & Advocacy.


The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) is the leading national organization exposing the links between all forms of sexual exploitation such as child sexual abuse, prostitution, sex trafficking, and the public health crisis of pornography. As the thread of pornography in the web of sexual exploitation is systemically overlooked by society, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation has prominently advanced this issue as a central pillar of its projects in order to promote more holistic solutions.


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.


Our movement was born from a series of conversations among exploitation and trafficking survivors, human rights and gender justice advocates, artists, activists, and direct service providers. We’re united in the belief that we won’t end exploitation until we confront its root causes. We know that an injustice that goes unseen is an injustice that goes unchallenged. Challenging a world in which human beings are being trafficked and exploited is what World Without Exploitation is all about.



Human trafficking is a form of modern–day slavery. This crime occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his or her will.


for Victims of Human Trafficking

Every year, The Salvation Army sets aside a Sunday in September to focus on the plight of trafficked individuals. This year it is Sunday September 22, 2019. The Eastern Territory will be hosting a National Day of training, prayer, and worship leading up to Sunday 9/22 in New York City on 9/20–9/21 2019.
