United Abolitionists

First Responders to the Human Trafficking Crisis in the United States, United Abolitionists exists to stop all forms of human trafficking in the United States. Many organizations tirelessly fight human trafficking on an international scale but there is so much work to be done right here in the U.S. Despite the increased media attention and legislative efforts, human trafficking remains pervasive in our country. We are dedicated to addressing the crime in “our own backyard”.

It’s A Penalty

Since 2014, It’s a Penalty has been working to disrupt the fastest growing and second largest criminal industry in the world: human trafficking and exploitation. We believe that prevention is even better than cure. As well as providing people with the tools to protect those who have been abused, exploited or trafficked, It’s a Penalty strives to prevent people from becoming victims of abuse, exploitation and human trafficking in the first place.
