SLAVERY­ MAP

Every captive is a person; every survivor has a story. It's time to show the world that slaves exist among us. Restaurants and fields, construction sites and brothels, suburbs and cities: all are home to victims of trafficking in the United States and abroad. Twenty-seven million slaves in the world, and we want to find them.

Links to further information is one of the most useful tools of this site.

OUR organization's web presence has been majorly expanded thanks to Max who has created a web site just for us.
Along with our more interactive and dynamic Meetup site, this constitutes our public face. I hope both sites will continue to grow and improve to reflect the thoughts and concerns of our members as we struggle together to learn how we can best tackle the issue of modern day slavery.

FIGHT SLAVERY NOW. ORG

The most informative single site I've found so far: FREE THE SLAVES.NET. How about the rest of you?

Cheers, Avra

A well documented site, that advocates for the abolition of prostitution, equating it with violence against women.

Two sites that coincidentally span the time from the earliest roots of the anti-slavery movement, right up to present day law in New York.

This site provided good background on the history of the abolitionist movements in America:

A Brief History of the American Abolitionist Movement

Important site for understanding New York's new sex trafficking and labor trafficking laws:

NY State Division of Criminal Justice Services

NYC Human Trafficking Task force has launched its new website:

NYC Let's End Human Trafficking

The website includes a link to the Human Trafficking Services Resource Directory, prepared by the Office of the Criminal Justice Coordinator, a referral guide to be used as a tool for service providers, law enforcement agencies, attorneys, and victims. This guide has been uploaded to our Files section on this Meetup site.

In addition the new website includes a host of downloadable training pdf's geared to a individuals, communities, and professionals: hospital workers, social service workers, lawyers, teachers and businesses.

Human trafficking in Central America. Two new web sites with a wealth of information:

EL CAZADOR CAMPAIGN (THE HUNTER CAMPAIGN)

Within the underground of Central America’s human trafficking world there is a man known as El Cazador, “The Hunter.” For years, he has hunted and freed girls taken into the sex trafficking networks of Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize and Mexico. The El Cazador Campaign, months in the making, has recruited, educated, and mobilized a social movement to take action and combat trafficking in Central America.

TAKEN WOMEN

TAKENWOMEN site has two purposes:
To provide information on human trafficking in Central America
To take action -- specifically targeting human trafficking in Honduras, Belize and Guatemala. You may note that this site graciously links to the home page of our Meetup site here at Fight Slavery Now!

A novel website culls information from around the world and categorizes it by type and geography. Seems like a useful research tool.
