Our Goal


team members



every month


victims identified annually
at a minimum

Human trafficking – the buying and selling of people – is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. 5,240 team members committed to giving monthly at this level will result in an expanded Guardian Group Analysis Team. Each skilled analyst, at a minimum, can generate and manage 230 victim identifications of domestic sex trafficking annually for law enforcement action. Together we can change the trajectory of sex trafficking in the United States.

Why $15.91?
Team 1591 is inspired by the law (18 U.S. Code § 1591) that protects children from being sold for sex. 
Where in the United States are you working?

Together enough skilled analysts and the Project 1591 volunteer force can successfully cover the entire United States.

Analysts that focus on a specific region of the United States become subject matter experts that are more efficient and effective in identifying sex trafficking in that region. Sex trafficking is transient by nature and victims tend to be exploited between the same cities over and over, sometimes referred to as a circuit. An analyst with the ability to focus regionally will recognize these patterns and victims, while simultaneously strengthening law enforcement partnerships in the same area, thus allowing for a proactive approach.

What if I want to give over $15.91?
Team 1591 is designed to generate reliable and sustainable funding. The 5,240 team members or donation sources are necessary to achieve this. Anything given over $15.91 will be used to further expand our mission but will not be counted as additional team members.
