ATEST believes lasting solutions to end modern-day slavery and human trafficking require coordinated actions and respectful partnerships between civil society, governments, and businesses. By collaborating with each other, peers in the movement, survivors of slavery and trafficking, policymakers, like-minded activists, and business and thought leaders, we seek opportunities to create positive and enduring change—including building the fundamental legal, corporate, and cultural standards that will end modern-day slavery and human trafficking in all of its forms.

ATEST experts are available for interviews (see contacts below.)
