I literally stumbled on a site today I had not heard of, The Polaris Project.
Polaris Project is committed to combating human trafficking and modern-day slavery, and to strengthening the anti-trafficking movement through a comprehensive approach.
The project was started by Katherine Chon and Derek Ellerman. They were still attending Brown University when they decided to start the project. Their casual conversations with friends, family and university professors convinced them that while many were well educated about the history of slavery, they were totally unaware of how pervasiveness of modern-day slavery.
They wondered, “What could two seniors getting their undergraduate degrees really do to make a difference on this issue?”
