Washington Engage (WAE) seeks to eradicate sex and labor trafficking in Washington State through initiatives that organize and empower local community groups to take action; provide professional, community and youth training and education; and enact policy advocacy at the state and community levels. Since its inception in 2010, WAE has grown in influence and sphere. The Coalition Against Trafficking (CAT) community engagement initiative has grown from the initial Federal Way pilot launched in 2011, to six coalitions in Western Washington; and policy work has contributed to WA State being awarded an “A” rating by Polaris, a leading national anti-trafficking organization.
