Our Mission

At The Joseph Project, the concept of enslavement extends beyond basic notions of physical confinement.  A survivor can be enslaved to a criminal record, an immigration challenge, or a debt burden. Empowerment is achieved when these obstacles are eliminated.

The Mission

Leveraging the Law to
Empower the Enslaved

Our mission is to connect human trafficking survivors with skilled pro bono legal counsel. By leveraging the law, we empower the enslaved, addressing the legal consequences of commercial exploitation and transitioning survivors toward an empowered future.
