ArtWorks for Freedom is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to harness the power of art in the global fight against modern slavery and human trafficking.  
Through diverse forms of artistic expression, we seek to transform public attitudes, inspire anti-trafficking activism and give voice to survivors of this worldwide crime against humanity.  
In partnership with human rights organizations, governments and the private sector, AWFF identifies, develops and deploys photography, film, dance, music, poetry, new and traditional art forms wherever resources and opportunities exist. 
Through these efforts, ArtWorks for Freedom
• Gives voice to those who have suffered from the corrosive effects of modern-day sexual and economic slavery
• Builds a network of creative activists whose work raises awareness of this problem and stimulates action by governments, institutions, and ordinary citizens worldwide
• Inspires courage in  victims and their families struggling for dignity, freedom and justice
