The 2024 Guide to Brands and Businesses that Fight Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a global crisis, with over 40 million trapped in modern slavery. Dignified employment is a key to recovery and transformation, and the businesses on this list are a real link between those whose lives are being transformed, and those who have the ability to make a difference.

The Freedom Business Alliance is working to end trafficking by addressing the economic roots of the issue, creating life-giving jobs for the most vulnerable. They have created a code of excellence to define standards for the anti-trafficking industry.

The FBA has defined 6 commitments of Freedom Business: a mission to end human trafficking, transparency and accountability, good working conditions, fair pay, healing centered workplace, and concern for external stakeholders. 

The businesses on this list have proven their commitment to ethical products and many are also working toward these guidelines. You can be sure that they are actually doing the good work that they claim! Redemption Market, a social impact shop in Phoenix, is proud to be considered a Freedom Business Champion, a business that extends the work of those who are working directly with survivors.
