The Washington Anti-Trafficking Response Network (WARN) is a coalition of non-governmental organizations that provide direct services to victims of human trafficking in Washington State. Since 2004, WARN has assisted survivors of sex and/or labor trafficking to live out their desired lives without re-victimization.

What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking is defined as the use of force, fraud or coercion to compel a person into any form of work against their will.

It is invaluable for WARN to be a coalition of community-based agencies serving communities vulnerable to human trafficking. This allows WARN to share information about available services with these communities, to provide low-barrier access to services, and also to provide linguistically and culturally-informed services to victims and survivors of human trafficking. Additionally, each WARN partner brings different expertise and capacity to serve clients, allowing for the provision of comprehensive services.
