Join Us in the Fight Against Human Trafficking
Life Preservers Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in 2009 that together with its international collective of artists, legal professionals and others is dedicated to eradicating human trafficking through fundraising, creative programming and a network of affinity relationships to organizations and agencies providing direct services to victims of human trafficking.
Since 2010, Life Preservers Project has raised over $100,000 for survivors of human trafficking. In addition, we regularly collect and distribute through our Crisis Bag Program much-needed toiletries and undergarments for survivors living in shelters in New York City.
Life Preservers is developing, through partnerships with like-minded corporations, programs to support survivors, raise awareness in at-risk communities and educate donors and sponsors. We also provide disaster relief assistance on a national level because natural disasters are a prime hunting ground for human traffickers.
We do all this through the generosity and in collaboration with corporations, legal organizations, artists, professional trade groups and technology providers.
The Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons leads the United States’ global engagement against human trafficking, an umbrella term used to describe the activities involved when someone obtains or holds a person in compelled service. Visit The Trafficking In Persons Report for more information.
According to statistics available from the US Department of State (below), human trafficking is on the rise globally. In the United States alone it is estimated that there are 50,000 cases of human trafficking each year.
Polaris provides human trafficking victims and survivors with critical support to get help and stay safe through the National Human Trafficking Hotline and a BeFree Textline.
