About The National Survivor Law Collective
Founded in 2020 in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Survivor Law Collective (NSL Collective) is composed of U.S. organizations focused on providing free legal services to victims and survivors of all forms of human trafficking, regardless of gender identity, nationality, or age. We are an inclusive, non-partisan collective that encourages broad participation and cross-collaboration in support of and through survivors.
The goals of NSL Collective are:
To provide a strong collective response to survivors’ legal and other needs across the country.
To increase resources for other organizations across the country who are providing direct services to human trafficking survivors.
To research and disseminate data-driven information on the legal needs of survivors.
To proactively develop and implement models of legal services that meet the needs of
survivors today and into the future, shaped by their direct voice and participation.
To create capacity by training attorneys on national and global better-practices and
trauma-informed considerations for serving human trafficking survivors.
