SAFE HORIZON

SafeHorizon

Safe Horizon is the nation’s leading victim assistance organization and serves over 350,000 people each year who have been touched by violence.  Safe Horizon’s mission is to provide support, prevent violence, and promote justice for victims of crime and abuse, their families and communities. The Anti-Trafficking Program was established in 2001, to serve trafficked persons in the New York City metropolitan area and is one of the country’s largest providers to survivors of human trafficking. The Anti-Trafficking Program works to provide direct services such as shelter or housing referrals, crisis counseling, and legal assistance to trafficking victims. It also provides national training and community outreach, and operates the New York City Service Network for Trafficked Persons.

The Anti-Trafficking Program utilizes an intensive case management approach in providing direct services to trafficked persons. The Program regularly receives referrals from Federal law enforcement agencies, and service providers to coordinate and provide direct services.

Strategic Thematic Direction

During 2011-13, through our Power in Migration and Work thematic programme, we engaged more directly with the migrant rights and labour rights movements. During 2014-2016 our work will build on the work of previous years; we will continue to push for a human rights based approach in anti-trafficking policies and practices.  We will also deepen our engagement with the issue of migration and labour.

The three thematic strategic issues outlined below are continuations of our work during 2011-13.

ACCOUNTABILITY Increasing the accountability of all anti-trafficking stakeholders involved in the design or implementation of anti-trafficking responses, towards the persons whose human rights they purport to protect.

ACCESS TO JUSTICE Broadening spaces for trafficked persons and migrant workers to practice their human rights by improving access to justice and combating all forms of discrimination that impact women’s ability to exercise their human rights as they relate to trafficking.

POWER IN MIGRATION AND WORK Centring an analysis of women’s power in their labour and migration to better assess migration and labour policies’ impact on women, and to work towards labour and migration processes that reflect migrants’ needs, aspirations and capabilities.
