Mission Statement

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

Description

DC Stop Modern Slavery began in 2004 as the DC Fight Human Trafficking Meetup: a place for individuals, local and international organizations to come together to learn, discuss the problem, and share ideas and initiatives for finding solutions. The initial impetus for the group came from Polaris Project, a prominent DC-based anti-trafficking NGO, and the first organizer was Polaris’ then Co-Executive Director, Katherine Chon. To ensure the group became truly community based, Katherine turned the organizing responsibilities over to community members in 2005 and organizers are now elected by the group. In early 2007, the members changed the name to "Stop Modern Slavery" and established www.stopmodernslavery.org. In late 2007, members began building a more structured organization and cohesive community, allowing the group to grow in depth and scope, and establishing a more action-oriented approach.
