Do you want to know which groups are engaged in the fight against human trafficking? The Allies Database, developed by the Massachusetts Coalition to End Human Trafficking, is the best place to start if you are focused on organizations in Massachusetts.
What you’ll find in the 3P Directory (the database on this page) is an expanded version of the Allies Database, reaching beyond Massachusetts and ever growing, with each organization described in ways that help you find the most relevant groups quickly and easily. The additional classifications are:
- the main focus of the group (protection, prosecution, prevention)
- the types of trafficking addressed (labor, sex)
- the population served (adult, children)
- key terms related to each organization’s activities useful for searching
Why call this the 3P Directory? The 3P policy dimensions (protection, prosecution, prevention) help describe anti-trafficking work, which is essential for facilitating collaboration, preventing overlap, and documenting the field. These three dimensions define a global framework for conceptualizing how to combat human trafficking and are reflected in the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children (Palermo Protocol or Anti-Trafficking Protocol) to the United Nations Transnational Organized Crime Convention (UNTOC) and in the United States’ Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA).
