Washington Trafficking Prevention
Washington Trafficking Prevention is a human rights organization addressing sex and labor trafficking in Washington State through prevention and early intervention initiatives. From policy work at the state legislature to grassroots community activism and professional engagement, we seek to make Washington State incompatible to human trafficking.
Washington Trafficking Prevention is a human rights organization co-founded in 2012 to work towards the eradication of all forms of human trafficking in Washington State. From 2010-12, WAE’s work resulted in 20 anti-trafficking bills passed into state law. In 2013, the state received an ’A’ rating from Polaris Project. That same year, WAE created community Coalitions Against Trafficking (CAT); today there are six CATs, including Pierce County Coalition. In 2015 the organization identified a need for human trafficking training and education at multiple levels. This includes youth education for middle and high school students; and training for frontline professionals, such as healthcare workers and educators, in identifying victims of trafficking.
