Service Providers Include
All forms of human trafficking
Service Providers: Please include administrative staff who are familiar with operations to complete the survey along with other staff members.
Service Providers & Survivors: The questions are separated into different sections & you can select which sections to complete.
* Please note that surveys completed through the Service Provider & Survivor (English), as well as the Law Enforcement (English) are included in our International IRB approval. The Service Provider & Survivors (Other Languages) is not included in the IRB approval since we rely upon an online translation service to translate the survey. Also, we have partners distributing the NOST to non-English speaking frontline workers and these include manual translations covered under the International IRB approval.

Take the global online survey on most devices.
If you receive multiple invitations to participate, please complete the survey only once.
Let's not just talk about the progress, let's problem-solve the challenges too.
Any of This Sound Familiar? It's time for real talk.
For Victim Service Providers
--> Never enough operational funds
--> Need more transportation for clients and organization
--> Collaboration is limited at times
--> Lack of accountability & transparency
--> Leaders still serving with little to no salary
--> Some organizations get most of the grants
--> Duplication of efforts
--> Lack of oversight for service providers
--> 60+ hour work weeks
--> Lack of reliable, updated, & accessible data
--> Division thrives in this movement
--> Mental health concerns needs to be addressed better
For Labor and/or Sex Trafficking Survivors
--> Never enough access to resources
--> Need reliable transportation
--> Don't trust the anti-trafficking community as a whole
--> Lack of opportunities to rebuild my life
--> Privacy concerns among allies & other survivors
--> Cannot access resources until a police report is filed
--> Don't get paid for sharing about my lived experience
--> Not treated professionally when advising
--> Medical care & disability benefits are hard to access
--> PTSD & CPTSD symptoms are unbearable at times
--> Prior police record prevents beginning a normal life
--> Mental health concerns needs to be address better
For those who serve in the anti-trafficking community, it is time that we share, in a confidential way, about what is and is not working, and then unite together to bring about real change...together.
"Unity is one of our greatest weapons against this crime. Division slows down progress."
