The London-based Stop the Traffik was founded in 2005, as a coalition campaigning to bring an end to human trafficking worldwide. The response was so overwhelming that in 2008 Stop the Traffik became the UN special advisor on community action against trafficking and later, provided expertise informing part of the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015).

The organization just published its latest Impact Report, with findings from 2023. This intelligence-led and prevention focused report evidences the organization’s progress towards this future. By placing lived experience data at the heart of its model, and by working upstream with communities most vulnerable to human trafficking, Stop the Traffic officials believe they have a solution that actively prevents people from being exploited.

Its model places lived experience of modern slavery and human trafficking (MSHT) at its center, harnessing the power of data and technology to uplift survivor narratives into a space that can drive real change.
