Committed to Ending Trafficking

This is a list of organizations that fight against human trafficking – organizations with a primary, or significant, commitment to ending human trafficking.

*This is by no means an exhaustive list, which may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness. You can help by expanding it with reliably sourced entries here. This is also by no means a list of organizations I personally endorse or support. As always, never support any organization blindly. Make sure it is well-established and reputable. Do your research!
