Polaris Project is a leading organization in the United States combating all forms of human trafficking and serving both U.S. citizens and foreign national victims, including men, women, and children. We use a holistic strategy, taking what we learn from our work with survivors and using it to guide the creation of long-term solutions.

We work to advance state and federal policy related to the crime of human trafficking - creating protections for victims while seeking accountability for human traffickers and others that contribute to human trafficking. The Policy Program tracks, drafts, and analyzes legislation; drafts model laws and guidelines; provides and presents testimony; and engages the public through policy advocacy and grassroots outreach. Our work has helped win passage of key federal legislation and anti-trafficking laws in dozens of states, creating the long-term legal framework necessary to eradicate human trafficking.
