Polaris Project is a Washington, D.C. based organization that fights all forms of human trafficking. The organization runs the United States’ National Hotline. The number of monthly calls it services has tripled since it began managing it in 2007 and now receives 1,500-2,000 calls per month. Since 2007, the NHTRC has received more than 44,000 calls. Their mission is focused and well researched. The vision of the young and inspired founders has influenced the U.S. Government’s policies and perspectives on human trafficking.
Polaris Project provides rescue, rehabilitation, and other services for victims; training for police officers and others; advocacy; and raises awareness about the issue for the public. The organization also works with the U.S. Government to construct and pass laws to prevent human trafficking, and to protect victims in need of help and sanctuary.
