to date in 2023 


This is a 202% increase in victim identifications from this same time last year!  The effort being put in by the Project 1591® volunteer force, combined with our internal Analysis Team, has drastically increased the impact we are able to have. The motivation behind Project 1591 was  to be able to scale our ability alongside the ever increasing domestic trafficking problem and we are seeing it start to accomplish what we hoped it would. At the end of the first quarter 2023 we are just 7 victim identifications shy of where we ended 2022. 


The 95 victims were identified in the blue states.
