About A21


When confronted with the horror of human trafficking, most people feel moved to do something about it. In 2007, A21 decided to stand up for the helpless and pledged to combat the injustice of human trafficking. In 2008, after much preparation, A21's first shelter for survivors of human trafficking was opened in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Today, A21 has 11 field offices, shelters, transition homes, and administrative bases in 10 different countries in order to rescue, rehabilitate, and restore victims of human trafficking.

A21's strategy is to prevent potential victims from being trafficked, protect victims by way of shelters nad other programs, prosecute traffickers and those involved in trafficking, and partner with those who will help abolish human trafficking.


The fight against human trafficking is a great and just one, and every person in the fight makes a difference. Motivated individuals working together to do what is right can change the world, and A21 is doing just that.



A21 also supports legislation aimed at abolishing the human slave trade. One such piece of legislation is a bipartisan piece of legislation introduced by Senator Corker. The legislation aims to establish a grant-making foundation called “The End Modern Slavery Initiative Foundation” that will help with preventing trafficking, protecting survivors, and prosecuting taffickers.
