Founded in 1998 in Los Angeles, California, the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking (CAST) was one of the first organizations in the United States to provide comprehensive social and legal services for survivors of human trafficking. Additionally, CAST opened the first shelter in the country exclusively dedicated to providing physically and psychologically safe housing for survivors. CAST serves male, female, and child victims of trafficking. CAST clients come from almost every region of the world including Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Africa and the United States. To date, CAST has provided services to over 1,500 survivors and their family members, as well as thousands of hours of technical consultation to organizations working on this issue across the country and internationally. Systemic change is at the core of CAST’s mission. Taking a survivor-centered approach to ending modern slavery, CAST has a proven track record of working directly with survivors of human trafficking which builds an important bridge between practice and policy to inform effective policy initiatives. By developing broad-based partnerships, CAST effectively advocates for policies that work to end human trafficking and help survivors rebuild their lives.
