There is a tremendous amount of work and advocacy that must be done to try to reach and eliminate the source of human trafficking as well as ensure the safety and well being of survivors. As a unique collaboration of community-based non-governmental organizations, the Asian Anti-Trafficking Collaborative (AATC) works to meet those needs through its multi-level strategy, including: · Comprehensive services to trafficked people and their families, including legal representation, social services, and emergency shelter; · Policy and legislative advocacy at the local, state, and federal levels; · Technical assistance and training to governmental and non-governmental organizations to build their capacity to respond to the needs of trafficked people; and · Ongoing community outreach and education about the multi-dimensional issue of human trafficking.
