THE JOSEPH PROJECT is a nonprofit organization that connects human trafficking survivors with pro bono legal services. It is inspired by the Biblical account of one of history’s earliest recorded survivors, who transitioned from exploitation to empowerment (Genesis 37-50).

The Issue

Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a crime perpetrated by those who commercially exploit others for sex and labor services through force, fraud, or coercion. Each year, thousands of trafficking cases are reported across the U.S.

The Problem

The Justice Gap

Trafficking survivors often face legal obstacles that arise from the circumstances of their enslavement. Yet, they frequently lack the means to secure legal assistance. This problem is commonly referred to as the justice gap.

The Solution

Legal First Responders

Closing the justice gap requires the creation of a broad network of Legal First Responders – an army of attorneys who are equipped to service the legal needs of every identifiable trafficking survivor, at no cost.

The Mission

Leveraging The Law To Empower The Enslaved

The Joseph Project exists to close the justice gap for trafficking survivors by creating a network of Legal First Responders to service their legal needs on a pro bono basis. By leveraging the law, we empower the enslaved, addressing the legal consequences of exploitation and transitioning survivors toward a future in which they are free to pursue their God-given dreams.
