May 20, 2009: The Project to End Human Trafficking (PEHT) is another effort to put an end to this global problem.
The founders of PEHT, a nonprofit organization that was established in 2004 as part of the anti-slavery movement, originally aimed not to begin an organization, but simply to offer educational lectures about human trafficking. They quickly found, however, that the need for information about slavery was great and they consulted with similar groups, such as Free the Slaves, to determine the best way to move forward.
Today, PEHT engages in anti-trafficking coalition building, educational outreach, direct service to victims, and collaboration with other national and international organizations in the global fight against human trafficking.
