We are a coaltion of state, civil society, and citizen organizers committed to the prevention of human trafficking in the Greater New Orleans area through education, advocacy, and research.
Members represent a diverse coalition of New Orleans area organizations, institutions, state agencies, political and religious affiliations.
The group maintains a working list of service providers and organizers who address this multi-faceted issue.
The group's primary goal is to collaborate in sharing and disseminating information, contacts, and protocols related to the existence, prevention, and response to human trafficking in and around New Orleans.
The working group is dedicated to advocacy, activism, and awareness raising projects that help to eradicate trafficking in the area.
A calendar of local anti-trafficking events keeps the community involved.

Human trafficking -- the exploitation of another person's labor through force, fraud, or coercion -- is modern day slavery. And it is happening right here in New Orleans.
With your help and the work by state legislators, Louisiana received a top ranking in the Shared Hope Protected Innocence Challenge.
Continue to thank Louisiana legislators for their efforts and for protecting child trafficking victims by passing the 'Safe Harbor' legislation.
