Global Centurion created the “Triple S” Network, a network of 85 survivor-centered service providers and anti-trafficking advocacy organizations across the United States. This network gives us unparalleled access to basic information about health, human services, and other needs of survivors across the U.S. and around the world. In addition, it provides a communication vehicle to bring the anti-trafficking community together when necessary to create action around a particular program or project. For example, last year, Craigslist came under scrutiny after a dozen cases of on-line child trafficking were uncovered on Craigslist. One of the largest organizations in the country, Polaris Project, sent out a petition calling on Craigslist to cease its “erotic services” ads. Polaris had three organization signatories until it contacted Global Centurion. We sent the petition around to Triple S Network members and within a week over 100 organizations had signed the petition which was then presented to Congress.
Our mission is four-fold:
1. Strength in Unity. To provide a unified voice for like-minded organizations – on the Hill and in other venues. Together we are stronger and can make our voice heard.
2. Advocacy and Lobbying. To educate, advocate, and to the extent possible under our non profit status, lobby for grants, contracts, earmarks, and other larger resources for which we individually we would not qualify.
3. Training and Technical Assistance. To provide training and technical assistance on a variety of anti-trafficking issues, including victim services, rescue and restoration, demand, law and law enforcement issues, and more.
4. Situation Awareness. To assist individual members in assessing progress made on abolishing trafficking, and understanding complex obstacles and challenges facing the global anti-trafficking community.
