The Anti-Human Trafficking Intelligence Initiative (ATII) combats global human trafficking by promoting corporate social responsibility through increasing awareness, facilitating intelligence integration and technology advancement, and encouraging strategic data collaboration.
Who we are
The Anti-Human Trafficking Intelligence Initiative, a 501(c)3 US based nonprofit, was formed in late Summer of 2019. At the time there were 5 key stakeholders who set out on a huge mission to #FollowMoneyFightSlavery!
Since starting ATII in 2019, the first 5 key stakeholders have expanded to over 50 volunteers – who we call our “expterteers” because they each have expert knowledge, are from many different backgrounds, and are willing to volunteer their time. In addition to our experteers, we also have accumulated a dozen industry thought leaders who serve on our Advisory Council. This rapid expansion of effort, passion, and positive impact has made ATII a strong force for good in the anti-human trafficking space.
Collectively we bring unique talents to the table, and we’ve joined forces to combat global human trafficking by leveraging corporate social responsibilities directly through advocacy awareness, intelligence integration, technology advancement, and strategic data collaboration.
The combination of the ATII team, along with the resources from our many important strategic partners has proven to be successful in combating labor and sex trafficking by hitting slave profiteers where they’ll hurt most.
We do this by sharing information and reporting activity to combat human trafficking through our relationships with the cryptocurrency community, regulatory officers and law enforcement personnel.
We aspire to bring necessary change in the approach to trafficking prevention, detection, reporting, and collaboration to achieve social justice and save lives by disrupting the illicit economics of human trafficking.
Together we aim to disrupt the operations, economics, and anonymity of Human Trafficking at the source, by following the money to fight slavery.
By partnering with for-profit companies – the lifeline of the economy - like economic gatekeepers such as financial institutions, other like-minded organizations, and corporations - we can cumulatively intervene in the illegal money operations, which would inhibit the trafficker's ability to exploit the vulnerabilities of our society.
Follow • Money • Fight • Slavery
We can’t do any of this without our dedicated group of expert volunteers. They each bring unique talents to the table.
Our experteers need to be equipped with a level of tenacity to meet, and often exceed, that of the traffickers.
Traffickers are crafty, ingenious, malicious, and devoid of a moral compass.
This corrupt system of humans violating human rights has met its match!
When good people join together on a mission…
To accelerate the abolition of modern slavery through strategic partnerships in finance, technology, and boots on the ground organizations.
To collaborate while positioning ourselves as a funding vehicle for anti-Human Trafficking nonprofits as a result of sponsorships from our corporate strategic partners.
To disrupt the economics of Human Trafficking by developing technology aimed at connecting financial institutions with collaborative data to provide law enforcement.
They can and will create massive momentum to prioritize the HUMAN in Human Trafficking.
How we do it
ATII provides partner companies with tools and strategies to aide in the prevention and detection of human trafficking. Our eLearning courses provide the most current information to thoroughly educate employees on the complexities of human trafficking. When employees learn what human trafficking looks like from the financial perspective, they can apply measures to the KYC process and actively consider human trafficking in the transaction monitoring process.
There are many ways in which stakeholders can collectively work to impede human trafficking activities, with one way being through direct financial interference. By taking advantage of the programs developed by ATII, ethically responsible institutions are not only taking action to protect their consumers, but are also preserving their integrity, reputation, and sustainability.
To combat a financial crime, an organization must thoroughly understand how those crimes play out. As anyone who actively combats trafficking will tell you, human trafficking is by far the most complex crime to investigate.
Our team of experts in the financial and data forensics space pool resources to actively develop a comprehensive suite of products and services catered to following the economic flow of human trafficking. This results in thorough investigations that stand on financial evidence negating the need to drag victims through a trial, further traumatizing them.
Because ATII is a nonprofit entity, we can pivot quickly in response to trends identified through our collaborative working model. It is those trends that guide our strategies to help your organization better support Law Enforcement investigations (proactively and reactively) to increase human trafficking convictions.
Trafficking practices pivot on a dime. Your means for detecting, disrupting and dismantling these criminal actions must do so as well.
