MISSION

To bring together a community of survivors of human trafficking by creating a platform for survivor-led advocacy, peer-to-peer mentorship, and empowerment that embraces all survivors, regardless of gender, age, nationality or type of trafficking experience.

About the National Survivor Network (NSN)

The National Survivor Network (NSN) is a Survivor Led Program of CAST. In February 2011, CAST launched the NSN to foster connections between survivors of diverse forms of human trafficking and to build a national anti-trafficking movement in which survivors are at the forefront and recognized as leaders. Members of the NSN include survivors with various backgrounds and origins spanning 24 countries, including Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Canada, Colombia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Honduras, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Malawi, Mexico, Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippine, Republic of Dominican, Sri Lanka, Thailand, United Kingdom, and United States. Active members currently reside in over 40 states including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Washington D.C. The NSN’s diverse membership makes it uniquely representative of the myriad of situations experienced by survivors of human trafficking. By connecting survivors across the country, the NSN supports survivors to realize and develop their own leadership and fosters collaboration with others who value their insight and expertise in the field.
