FUTURES is at the forefront of policy and program initiatives to prevent trafficking and help survivors to heal and thrive. The scope of this work ranges from the prevention of labor and sex trafficking to ensuring justice for victims and empowering survivors with the tools for recovery.
FUTURES also provides training and technical assistance to organizations seeking to work collaboratively to effectively respond to human trafficking in their communities. Our interactive training opportunities bring together professionals from law enforcement, immigration, victim services, and the violence prevention field in order to advance best practices in preventing trafficking and keeping victims safe.
Human trafficking has severe adverse effects on the health, well-being, and human rights of millions of vulnerable adults and young people in the United States and globally. Domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking are inter-sectional issues for many survivors. Like domestic violence and sexual assault, trafficking is about power and control and exploitation of people, particularly women and children.
