Registration is open for Hacking 4 Freedom!
The International Labour Organization estimates that there are currently 20.9 million victims of human trafficking globally. The Freedom Lab focuses our initial efforts on breaking down the sex trafficking market within local US markets. Sexual exploitation generates the highest annual profits per victim by trafficking sector at an estimated global average of 4.5 times more than for labor exploitation. There are approximately 550 children sexually trafficked in the US per day. Despite the many institutions working to address human trafficking, the problem appears to be growing. We continue to lack a process to measure counter trafficking efforts underway in the U.S along with what impact they may have on preventing people from being trafficked. We believe that impactful interventions against complex systems must be synchronized across the trafficking cycle from prevention, prosecutions, protection and to rescue, recovery, reintegration.
