The Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking (CAST) provides life-changing services to survivors of human trafficking and mobilizes citizens to build a future where modern slavery no longer plagues our communities, our city or our world. Tax ID 10-0008533


As the first anti-trafficking organization in the country, the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking (CAST) is one of the key leaders of the US anti-trafficking movement and is known for its model programs across the globe. Founded in 1998 in response to the discovery of 72 Thai workers that had been kept for years in slavery and debt bondage in Los Angeles County, the organization has been at the forefront of the issue in L.A., California, and across the U.S., including opening the first-ever shelter exclusively for trafficking victims. Today, through partnerships with over 100 cultural and faith-based community groups, healthcare organizations, government agencies and law enforcement, CAST provides support at every phase of a human trafficking victim's journey to becoming an empowered survivor. Serving as a crucial bridge between practice and public policy, CAST is a learning organization that puts its evidence-based data to work on creating systemic change. By combining its model of social and legal services for survivors with a leadership and advocacy model, survivors are empowered to shape public policy and public dialogue on trafficking. Through CAST Survivor Leadership programs, survivors are equal partners who can access the skills, training, and opportunities they need to become powerful voices at the forefront of the anti-trafficking movement.

Human trafficking is the second largest criminal enterprise in the U.S. and CAST cannot tackle the injustice of modern slavery alone. Your donation goes directly to helping survivors of human trafficking on their journeys to safety and healing. Making a life-transforming contribution today will ensure that this generation of survivors is our last!
