We implement education and prevention strategies and provide clinical and support services to survivors of child sex trafficking.
Araminta reduces the threat of child sex trafficking-the buying and selling of minors for the purpose of sexual exploitation-and provides clinical and support services to individuals who have survived what the U.S. Department of Justice and United Nations define as modern slavery.
We take both our name and inspiration from Harriet Tubman, the American abolitionist and political activist, whose birth name was Araminta. Born enslaved in Maryland, Ms. Tubman led family members and other enslaved people to freedom as a "conductor" of the Underground Railroad, guiding them to places where they could build new lives. Since "conductors" and "passengers" traveled at night to avoid capture, the Underground Railroad used lanterns as beacons of safety and freedom.
