Abolitionist Mom is a human rights organization creating high impact awareness campaigns to interrupt and prevent human trafficking. We collaborate with survivors of trafficking and amplify their perspectives in order to shatter the myths around exploitation and offer real solutions to combat it. Our outdoor and transit public service ads have reached tens of millions of people and reframed the issue nationally. We advocate for prevention education in schools and youth-serving organizations and have been instrumental in passing the first human trafficking education law in the US, California SB1165.
