Combating Human Trafficking

The Salvation Army working to combat human trafficking

These pages provide highlights of The Salvation Army's efforts to eradicate human trafficking. The Salvation Army firmly believes that the abuse and exploitation of human beings through any form of human trafficking is an offense against humankind and against God.



This belief, combined with our mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination, motivates us to work vigilantly for the prevention of human trafficking and for the restoration of survivors. To that end, we hope that the information provided here will encourage and inspire you to join with us in working to see that all people are treated with dignity and given the opportunity to lead self-determined lives.

The Salvation Army is deeply committed to the modern-day fight against human trafficking (for sexual and labor purposes) and forms of commercial sexual exploitation innately linked to sexual trafficking. This commitment emerges from both The Salvation Army's mission - to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination - and is rooted in the organization's early history.
