Awareness Initiatives

The Salvation Army partners with local coalitions and task forces to raise public awareness and provide cross disciplinary expert training on key topics of human trafficking such as: understanding human trafficking in the United States, understanding trauma, creating trauma informed aftercare services and investigative task forces, recognizing red flags and increasing prevention. We seek to improve the identification of both sex or labor trafficking in the U.S. and collaborate with other organizations and authorities to put an end to the ongoing exploitation of children and adults across our country.

A legacy of justice

From the very beginning, The Salvation Army has been advocating for the rights of girls and boys, women and men who are 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 in the U.K. By 1900, we had established over 100 “aftercare restoration 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.
