At the White House on September 16, Humanity United, the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Housing and Urban Development launched the Partnership for Freedom - a public-private partnership to spur innovative solutions to human trafficking challenges. There will be three innovation competitions, the first of which opened on September 17, 2013. The Reimagine: Opportunity challenge is dedicated to improving the infrastructure of support for survivors of modern-day slavery.
The goal of this effort is to inspire experts in the anti-trafficking field to connect with new partners and generate new ideas for sustainable housing, economic empowerment and stronger social services for survivors. This competition is open to local nonprofit or for-profit organizations.
“The goal of the Partnership for Freedom is to inspire communities to work together to address some of the key challenges facing survivors of modern-day slavery,” said Randy Newcomb, president and CEO of Humanity United. “We want to see new actors, new skills, new data, new ideas and new energy enter the anti-trafficking conversation.”
