Polaris operates the National Human Trafficking Hotline and Befree Textline to connect survivors to critical support to get help and stay safe.
Named after the North Star that guided slaves to freedom in the U.S., Polaris systemically disrupts the human trafficking networks that rob human beings of their lives and freedom. Our comprehensive model puts victims at the center of what we do – helping survivors restore their freedom, preventing more victims, and leveraging data and technology to pursue traffickers wherever they operate. The National Human Trafficking Hotline is a national, toll-free hotline, available to answer calls, texts, and chats from anywhere in the country, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year. The Hotline is a program of Polaris, a non-profit, non-governmental organization working exclusively on the issue of human trafficking.
