The Project to End Human Trafficking (PEHT) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2004 as part of the anti-slavery movement. The initial goal of the founders was not to begin an organization, but simply to offer educational lectures about human trafficking. They quickly found that the need for information about slavery was great and subsequently consulted with similar groups, such as Free the Slaves, to determine the best way to move forward with their work. Co-founder and director is Carlow faculty member Mary Burke, PhD.
The mission of PHET is to work toward the elimination of trafficking in persons, especially women and children trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Activities through which the mission is actualized include:
