DC Stop Modern Slavery (DC SMS) is a diverse and growing community group taking action to end slavery wherever it occurs, beginning in our own city.
Our Vision: A world without slavery
Our Mission: To end modern slavery through community education and action
Our Current Strategic Goals:
A DC-area community that is educated about human trafficking. We will do this by creating a forum for education, engagement, and action and by reaching out to groups and individuals to share information about this issue.
An active DC-area community. We will do this by fostering grassroots movements for local change, by giving people the necessary tools and support to act, and by complementing existing efforts of NGO’s, government, private sector, and the community to combat slavery.
A successful community-based model for combating human trafficking that can be replicated at other locations. We will do this by documenting and spreading the knowledge and best practices we’ve learned in building DC SMS to communities in other parts of the country and world.
