Nearly all survivors who come to the Human Trafficking Legal Center for help are immigrant women who have been held in forced labor, deprived of food, wages, and medical care; many have suffered physical and sexual abuse. HTLC connects them to its network of more than 4,000 highly skilled pro bono attorneys who are ready and willing to help. With legal support, clients can obtain criminal restitution, bring civil suits against their traffickers, win damages, obtain immigration status, and gain financial independence. To ensure expert representation, attorneys receive specialized training, extensive technical assistance, and data analysis services. Landmark research and public education further advance the cause. Since 2012, HTLC has helped trafficking survivors win over $74 million in court orders and public settlements – funds clients use to purchase homes, open businesses, provide for their children, and rebuild their lives.
