The National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) is a national, toll-free hotline, available to answer calls and texts from anywhere in the country, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year. The NHTRC is a program of Polaris Project, a non-profit, non-governmental organization working exclusively on the issue of human trafficking. They are not a government entity, law enforcement or an immigration authority.


“Secretary Kerry (June 19, 2013): “When we help countries to prosecute  traffickers, we are strengthening the rule of law. When we bring victims out of  exploitation, we are helping to create more stable and productive communities.  When we stop this crime from happening in the first place, we are preventing the  abuse of those who are victimized as well as the ripple effect that caused  damage throughout communities into our broader environment and which corrupt our  global supply chains. We all have an interest in stopping this crime. That’s why President Obama is so focused on this issue. And that’s why, as Secretary of  State, I will continue to make the fight against modern-day slavery a priority for this Department and for the country.”
