Human trafficking is a $150 billion global industry that depends on legitimate businesses and systems to operate. Nonprofit and government stakeholders alone do not have the resources to compete against an adversary of that magnitude. If we want to make a dent, we need to fight back at comparable scale. That can only be achieved if those same businesses that unwittingly make trafficking possible participate in the solution. Financial support is important but so is real partnership – actual, active engagement and effort to consider how business practices unwittingly – but regularly – intersect with traffickers, victims, and survivors of sex and labor trafficking.
Polaris seeks partnerships with companies that are committed to slavery-proofing their sector. We develop customized, sustainable, service-oriented, and survivor-centric corporate partnerships that achieve tangible results and deliver value to our partners while furthering our mission to eradicate human trafficking.

“To other business leaders…Find your line in the sand and draw it. By learning how your own industries are manipulated for injustice, your systems can become tools in defending the dignity of others.”
– Ed Bastian, CEO, Delta Air Lines
700K Corporate Employees
700,000 corporate employees have been trained by Polaris in collaboration with survivors and other partners to better understand the realities of human trafficking and how to respond to potential trafficking situations in an appropriate and victim-centered manner.
More than 25 companies have partnered with Polaris to make their communities safer and address how sex and labor trafficking might intersect with their businesses.
