Text: HELP to BeFree (233733)

Between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. each year.

This form of modern-day enslavement exists all over the United States.

The Salvation Army declares war on human trafficking.

In collaboration with the Michigan State Police, we have created a taskforce called the Joint Anti-Trafficking Taskforce (JATT) with the goal of developing a multidisciplinary human trafficking task force that implements trauma-informed, victim-centered, collaborative, and sustainable approaches to:

  • Identify victims of all types of human trafficking within specific geographic areas.
  • Investigate and prosecute sex trafficking and labor trafficking cases.
  • Address the indiviualized needs of victims through the provision of a comprehensive array of quality services.

Save someone from a life of enslavement. You can help.

Awareness Initiatives

The Salvation Army partners with local coalitions to raise public awareness of the injustices of human trafficking. By planning prevention activities and working to reduce the demand for commercial sex and forced labor, we prevent future victims. By improving the identification and prosecution of local traffickers, we help rescue and restore current victims.

A legacy of justice

For over 200 years, The Salvation Army has been advocating for the rights of women and children subjected to organized commercial sexual exploitation. In the 1800s, we pioneered an undercover investigation of sex trafficking, which helped shape the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885. By 1900, we had established over 100 "rescue homes" throughout London to abet safe escape from prostitution. More than a century later, we continue to fight for the abolition of sex trafficking worldwide.
