About No Traffick Ahead

Who We Are

No Traffick Ahead is the largest multi-county workgroup in the Northern California Bay Area dedicated to a long-term, sustainable approach to combating human trafficking in all forms. 

Our workgroup comprises over 50 agencies from six counties across the Bay Area and includes direct and legal service providers, law enforcement, and government agencies, as well as community, faith-based, and survivor-led outreach groups.  We bring comprehensive expertise and insight into combating all forms of human trafficking. 


Our Mission

We echo the U.S. State Department's "4-P's" for combating trafficking:  

Ensure the protection of victims,

the prosecution of offenders,

and the prevention of human trafficking and slavery through an effective coordinated partnership


Our Approach

We take a victim-centered, trauma-informed approach.  By opening communication across different sectors, we aim to close gaps in services and ensure efficiency in providing victim-centered services once survivors have been identified. We also engage the broader community and raise awareness of all forms of trafficking occurring daily in the Bay Area.
