Every day, powerful criminal networks and individual traffickers on both sides of the border recruit people for labor or sexual exploitation. To stop traffickers and support survivors, it is critical that civil society, governments, and law enforcement also collaborate internationally. That’s why Polaris has partnered with Consejo Ciudadano to support Mexico’s first national human trafficking hotline. Between Consejo’s Línea Nacional Contra la Trata de Personas and the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC), operated by Polaris, survivors on either side of the border can seek and receive help. 

The statistics in this document are based on calls related to Mexico that both organizations received from September 30, 2015 to August 31, 2016.
