About Win This Fight:
Win This Fight is a non-profit organization created to help combat and help eradicate Human Trafficking. Human trafficking is a global, complex and heartbreaking issue. According to the US Department of Defense, human trafficking is the second-largest and fastest-growing criminal enterprise globally. It is also estimated to be the most profitable crime in the world. The Global Slavery Index estimates that there are over 40 million people enslaved worldwide, and that slavery is present, in some form, in 167 countries.
We are responding to this challenge by adopting a Preventative Approach. Reliance on technology and identifying the source/flow of money have been two key avenues that law enforcement has relied on consistently to track down criminals. Win This Fight is taking the same approach on a global scale by:
- Leveraging technology to train and employ the survivors, preventing them from returning to their trafficker.
- Launching an anti-money laundering due-diligence solution at a global scale
