When the National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline or Polaris provides referrals for trafficking cases across the United States we know which organizations to call for help. When a victim reaches out from another country, however, we turn to the Global Modern Slavery Directory.
The Directory contains over 2,800 organizations in 199 countries, but we are constantly looking to update and strengthen it. Please help us build the Directory and expand the global safety net for victims. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the names of two organizations in your country who you think should be included.
Earlier this year, we learned of a West African woman trapped in domestic servitude in the Middle East. We were able to use the Directory to connect her with an organization in her home country that could provide services upon her return, and because of that support she was able to leave her trafficking situation. The Directory has proven to be an incredibly useful tool for connecting victims with the services they need across the globe, and we encourage you to use it in the same way -- to refer victims from other countries to people who can help.
We encourage you to share the Directory with your networks on Facebook and Twitter so they can use this tool, too. It’s simple -- just use the hashtags #modernslavery and #AntiSlaveryDirectory.
Here are some sample posts you can use to help spread the word about this important tool:
#Modernslavery is a global problem, so we need a global solution. Use the #AntiSlaveryDirectory to find orgs around the world: http://globalmodernslavery.org/
