About Us

Summary of STOP THE TRAFFIK:


STOP THE TRAFFIK is a pioneer in human trafficking prevention. Working to unite people

around the world by inspiring, informing, equipping and mobilizing communities to:


• Know what trafficking is;

• Know how to identify it and how to respond;

• Know how to protect themselves and others.


We act globally and think locally.


Human trafficking and modern slavery are truly global issues. Therefore, our work reaches all

corners of the globe. Our goal is to build resilient communities, by turning them into places

where it is harder for traffickers to hide their activities and their victims.


Given the organized nature of these crimes, we believe that the best way to combat them is

through intelligence-led prevention. As such, we are collecting data and stories from around the

world and building intelligence. Since 2005 we have done this by building diverse partnerships

across local and online communities, business and financial sectors, law enforcement and faith

networks. As a result, STOP THE TRAFFIK has engagement and access to a network of

millions of anti-trafficking activists and communities, working across 150 countries. Based on

our extensive experience in the sector, we know that the empowerment of communities, the

development of a collaborative and cooperative approach involving a network of active

stakeholders, and the timely collection, analysis and dissemination of trafficking data are integral

to the prevention of modern slavery.


Our mission is to disrupt trafficking networks by starving them of profit through the greatest of

tools: people and technology. To that end, STOP THE TRAFFIK’s main activities comprise:


1) Raising awareness of modern slavery/human trafficking in order to build resilient

communities: through extensive awareness raising and engagement with every stakeholder:

the public, statutory agencies, enforcement, government, financial institutions, businesses,

faith networks, community leaders and NFP, giving every community the information and

tools to take action against trafficking.


2) Working globally and thinking locally: our affiliates and partners around the world work

to educate people on modern slavery/human trafficking and those who may be vulnerable

and equip communities to spot the signs of slavery. STT uses social media to reach and

raise awareness amongst its large online community. We also use dynamic public displays

such as the STT GiftBox created in partnership with the UN and displayed in places like

Union Square in New York.


3) Working with businesses and the financial sector to understand the impact of

trafficking on them and to take preventative action: we work directly with companies

across various industries to help them understand how modern slavery is manifested within

their supply chains and aid on ways in which they can change business practices to ensure

they are both transparent and slavery-free. The financial sector is working with STT to

identify proceeds of crime and take action to disrupt the traffickers business model.


4) Actively disrupting human trafficking internationally: STT has developed a unique

intelligence led approach to Prevention. This brings all aspects of our work into a powerful

systemic model to disrupt the crime and enable communities to become resilient to the

crime. We do this through the collection, analysis and dissemination of modern

slavery/human trafficking data by the Centre for Intelligence-Led Prevention.

STT Global has pioneered prevention over the past 12 years.

STT USA was formed 2 years ago to further expand our mission.


Today we stand at the cusp of exciting new opportunities. Because of the success we see in

fundraising, partnerships and USA campaigns, we are seeking to appoint the first STT USA

Executive Director to bring leadership to our work across USA and to share in our global

vision to disrupt trafficking through being globally connected and locally led. This is a

highly visible position offering challenge and the opportunity for growth and advancement as US

operations expand.
