Anti-Human Trafficking Retail Consortium (ATRC)

Anti-Human Trafficking Retail Consortium

We are equipping organizations to better identify risks related to human trafficking, child exploitation and child sexual abuse material (CSAM) within the retail industry, which includes a special focus on the use of gift cards as a payment facilitator of human exploitation.

The promotion of collaboration between organizations in the retail space and law enforcement in the fight against modern slavery is a long term goal of the ATRC


The evolution of human trafficking related information-sharing between organizations and the regulatory changes that facilitate this collaboration can be propelled forward with retail corporations and law enforcement thought-leadership related to Human Traffick-ing to save lives and uphold justice.



Encourage the retail industry to effectively practice positive Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) impacts.

An important role of the Members is to provide both financial and non-financial support. This can be accomplished either personally or through your organization.

As the Consortium is part of ATII, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization, financial support and gifts-in-kind are all considered tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Many organizations will also match donations to charitable organizations. These matches are often dollar for dollar, which doubles your charitable donation.

If your organization is looking for a way to give back and do something for the community while building its reputation as a giving institution around a very important charitable cause, please consider sponsoring the Anti-Human Trafficking Retail Consortium (ATRC).

We graciously request you to align with us as one of our corporate sponsors and let everyone know your company is working to eradicate modern slavery and make the world a better place.
