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.
