Human Trafficking Resources in the U.S.

The Exodus Road, an anti-human trafficking organization, operates on-the-ground human trafficking intervention in Southeast Asia and Latin America. At this time, our work in the United States is limited to cyber investigations; we do not provide emergency intervention or aftercare services. If you are looking for support in the U.S., we have compiled some trusted resources if you or a loved one is impacted by human trafficking.
