Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery that occurs in every state, including Texas. The National Human Trafficking Hotline (NHTRC) works closely with service providers, law enforcement, and other professionals in Texas to serve victims and survivors of trafficking, respond to human trafficking cases, and share information and resources.
There have been 1,142 calls to the National Human Trafficking Hotline from Texas so far this year, and 433 human trafficking cases reported in Texas!
If someone you know needs help, please call the Hotline: Call the Hotline 1-888-373-7888.
Polaris is a leader in the global fight to eradicate modern slavery. Named after the North Star that guided slaves to freedom in the U.S., Polaris systemically disrupts the human trafficking networks that rob human beings of their lives and their freedom. Their comprehensive model puts victims at the center of what they do – helping survivors restore their freedom, preventing more victims, and leveraging data and technology to pursue traffickers wherever they operate.
