When profits take priority over people, the resulting exploitation and trafficking can inflict lasting physical, psychological, and societal harm. The Advocates for Human Rights combats human trafficking in the Upper Midwest through prevention, survivor protection, and legal reform.
We monitor government compliance with international obligations, document violations, and advocate for rights-based public policy in response. We provide training and technical assistance to organizations and communities seeking to improve their response to both sex and labor trafficking.
We also provide direct support for survivors of human trafficking through free immigration legal assistance and comprehensive referrals, as well as training and mentoring for lawyers.
