A Solutions Platform for Promoting Synergistic Solutions to Abolish Global Slavery and Support Sustainability

Trinity's mission is to combat human trafficking:

 
                                                   Within the US
Trinity launched its first stage of development by conducting trainings on combating human trafficking to corporations, the US government, and community organizations. Trinity facilitated and held over 60 public speaking engagements to more than 2,200 activists, including to entities such as the USDA, NSA, Sprint, the Georgetown and George Washington Universities, healthcare facilities, ESL programs, and churches.

Trinity is moving into its next phase of researching and publishing sustainable solutions on combating human trafficking and is seeking researchers and analysts, who wish to be published on Trinity's website. Trinity also provides assistance to those who are seeking to be published in journals, newspapers and magazines by providing editing services and substantive knowledge on human trafficking and its law.
 

Within the Local Community

Trinity believes in giving back to the local community by providing pro bono legal services to human trafficking survivors in the DC Metro Area. Trinity assisted a survivor to obtain a T Visa to remain in the US and sue her traffickers in civil court for labor trafficking where she obtained a mediated settlement -- the first case of its kind in the state of Maryland.

 

Internationally

Trinity partners with NGOs that are acting globally and implementing comprehensive and sustainable solutions that lessen the risk of human trafficking to vulnerable populations. In this way, Trinity has the ability to make an impact on the lives of human trafficking victims all over the world and assist its partners in fulfilling their synergistic missions.

Trinity: The Third Hand of Protection

Trinity came into fruition with the mystical guidance of a third hand of protection, eloquently depicted by the Seafarer's Memorial sculpted by renowned  artist Stanley Wanlass.  Wanlass dedicated this piece to the sailors, watermen, and  "those who do business on its waters, who have been lost at sea."  Trinity pays tribute via this third hand of protection to all human trafficking victims who have been at the mercy of unscrupulous businesses resulting in unjust harm. It is Trinity's wish that this third hand lends its protection to all human trafficking victims and all those who ceaselessly work to combat this atrocity, known as "modern day slavery."

The issue of human trafficking has come to the forefront of national and global concern. Human trafficking involves the procurement of people through deception or force for the purpose of labor or sexual exploitation, where victims are coerced to work under heinous, often violent circumstances, at times seven days a week for little or no pay. This slideshow depicts current conditions of human trafficking existing today and our work to combat it.
