Three trailblazing organizations have joined the Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking (ATEST), expanding the alliance’s depth and breadth of expertise and strengthening the alliance’s collective voice. HEAL Trafficking, Humanity United Action and the McCain Institute for International Leadership bring the alliance to 15 member organizations.
“HEAL Trafficking is thrilled to join ATEST,” said HEAL Executive Director Hanni Stoklosa. “The majority of trafficked persons in the United States access health care while being trafficked. However most health systems and health professionals are not prepared to respond to trafficked persons. By bringing HEAL’s unique health care and public health expertise to the critical anti-trafficking policy work that the ATEST does, our vision is that all people who experience trafficking and access health care will be set on a path of healing and thriving.”
