About Us


Framework aids service providers at the state and local level that are currently serving or seeking to serve all people with lived experience of labor trafficking. We are dedicated to the creation of tailored, engaging, and user-friendly training and technical assistance and resources. Our project is guided by human rights values and a belief that no form of human trafficking has a place in our world. We work with survivors and other experts to comprehensively understand the issue of labor trafficking—from root causes to best practices in promoting justice and healing—and equip the field with the tools necessary to create meaningful change for victims and survivors.
