Join us for the first Tech Against Trafficking Summit in Seattle!

An estimated 40 million men, women, and children are victims of modern slavery on any given day. Over the last decade, technology has fundamentally changed the way modern day slavery can be eradicated across global supply chains, human traffickers can be hold accountable for their crimes, and survivors can be empowered to see justice restored.

Which technologies are working, what needs additional support, and how can we enhance sustainable cross-sector collaboration to support catalytic solutions?

For the first time, Tech Against Trafficking is bringing together stakeholders from business, civil society, and governments to accelerate the impact of innovative technologies and practical solutions addressing human exploitation. Participants will include global leaders from Microsoft, MIT, the OSCE, Polaris, and Working Capital.

Are you going to join our fight?
