Human trafficking is a $150 billion global industry that robs 27.6 million people around the world of their freedom. Government alone can’t end this. Neither can non profit advocates. It will take all of us – business, law enforcement, government and community – to change the systems, the laws, the biases, and the underlying social structures that together make human trafficking possible and profitable.

Together with our partners from all these sectors, we are reimagining a comprehensive, global and targeted response to human trafficking based in our shared commitment to ensuring every human being has a chance to live in freedom and with dignity.

Corporate Partners

Human trafficking touches virtually every corner of the private sector in some way. Working together, Polaris can help our corporate partners to recognize where and how their businesses intersect with trafficking and put in place industry-leading policies to slavery-proof the future.
