Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Civil Rights, Crime & Law

Mission: To collaboratively problem-solve challenges impacting anti-trafficking stakeholders through research and data collection.

Results: We hosted the 2016 Pilot Study for 12 stakeholder groups and collected data from respondents representing 47 states and 70 countries. We identified and documented many unresolved challenges impacting different stakeholder groups. We also proved the efficacy of our work and the need to reach a larger number of stakeholders in future research. In 2018, we hosted the Lingering Medical Symptoms Pilot Study through our "Equip and Empower Overcomers" program. Through this study, we had 27 sex trafficking survivors from 15 states confirm more than 70 lingering medical ailments that impact their daily lives. The data collected in this study will contribute towards medical questions asked to survivors and healthcare professionals on the upcoming National Outreach Survey.

Target demographics: Identify and document unresolved challenges impacting more than 23 anti-trafficking stakeholder groups across the globe.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We have collaborated with more than 50 stakeholders across 22 countries and gained valuable feedback from more than 30 sex and labor trafficking survivors. United Against Slavery is built by stakeholders on behalf of other stakeholders.

Geographic areas served: Global

Programs: Access to participate in the National Outreach Survey every two years and utilize the data through more than 50 reports and our online open-source database.

United Against Slavery is one of the most transparent and fiscally responsible organizations I have ever worked with. The vision is clear and will be a game changer for the anti-trafficking organizations, allies and government officials seeking to find the correct ways to address this modern day scourge. There is NO other organization or data/research organization that has the ability to do what UAS is doing and the priority to collaborate with everyone involved in this fight is what makes UAS distinct and an integral part of this movement. UAS has some of the most knowledgeable collaborators in this movement working on its behalf and their integrity is beyond reproach. I cannot say enough about this incredible organization, the people working to make an impact for survivors of human trafficking and what this will do for the data/research community.

unitedstrong Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. The mission is great. The challenges are great. But choosing not to act is a cost we cannot afford to take. May we be faithful, no matter that cost. Lives are counting on us to rise up and meet those challenges. We are stronger when we work together. Onward.

I've had the honor of working alongside UAS and Christi for over a year, and I have nothing but the utmost respect for the work they're doing. In the anti-trafficking sector, it is incredibly important for service providers, law enforcement, researchers, policy makers and others to make data-driven decisions. UAS is trying to do just that, which is remarkable. I feel very privileged to be able to assist in this process and think what UAS is doing is truly groundbreaking and important work.

As a concerned citizen/wife/mother, it is an understatement to say that the need for this organization and the research opportunities they provide on a global scale is greatly needed! Thank God for forward thinking people who care enough about human rights and the human trafficking crisis, to work so hard to bring change in this arena. Continue to do the amazing job you’re doing UAS and maybe we will see an end to this horrible evil...

Thank you for your ongoing support. It is so important that the general public have a place to be engaged in the fight against all forms of human trafficking. The National Outreach Survey (NOS) allows such a place to ask public opinion questions to help the anti-trafficking movement grow! Thank you again!

I am so pleased to be able to share a recommendation on behalf of United Against Slavery! Christi Wigle has been a stalwart champion of survivors, and a long-time mentor of mine as I’ve worked with survivors for the past several years. She embodies solid ethics and transparency in everything she does.

It is so exciting to see how the comprehensive work United Against Slavery has done, and the reports they will provide, will positively impact the work to combat human trafficking and assist survivors and advocates for years to come throughout the nation.

UAS fulfills a crucial role in this movement!

Perhaps the greatest gap in the response to human trafficking is real, verified, data from those actually involved in the response to human trafficking. Most "data" that we see are estimates, based upon extrapolations of outdated data sets, from limited sources. United Against Slavery is filling a gap that hasn't been filled yet: surveying over 23 unique stakeholder groups including survivors, law enforcement, victim services providers, and many more. UAS will collect empirical data from those in their respective fields who are doing real work, every day, to make a difference. The National Outreach Survey will impact our response to human trafficking in ways we can't yet imagine. I've been involved in the response for 15 years see the critical need for what UAS will provide. I am proud to support the collaborative work of United Against Slavery!

United Against Slavery is committed to identifying and documenting successes and unresolved challenges impacting the main anti-trafficking stakeholders through comprehensive data collection and collaboratively work to problem solve the lingering changes. In my former role at GuideStar (GuideStar + Foundation Center = Candid), I had the great opportunity to collaborate with with their CEO, Christi Wigle. I have yet to meet a leader who is as passionate and devoted to the cause as Christi. I commend United Against Slavery's commitment to transparency and am most interested in seeing the continued impacts of the National Outreach Survey (NOS). In order to evaluate the current condition of the anti-trafficking movement, it is critical to stop and ask those on the front-lines about what is and isn't working. Thanks to United Against Slavery for developing the National Outreach Survey (NOS) to collect front-line data from 23+ stakeholder groups. Keep fighting the fight, United Against Slavery!

Thank you Debby for being such a faithful volunteer for the last several years. We feel that your expertise on cults has highlighted the voices of others who have suffered so much abuse in cults. That knowledge has helped us in drafting survey questions for the NOS. We genuinely appreciate all you have contributed to make UAS stronger! Thanks my friend.

I've had the pleasure of interacting with United Against Slavery (UAS) for almost a year. To see the impact and the fiscal responsibility that the organization has deliver since inception is simply amazing.. There isn't another organization that I'm currently aware of that has been able to gather the research and provide a national outreach survey as thorough as what UAS has complied..

Thank you Ed for being a part of our team. Your passion for networking and collaboration fit right into who we are as an organization. None of us can combat human trafficking alone and it has taken everyone using their skills to help UAS build a comprehensive empirical research organization. We are stronger when we work together! Thanks again Ed!

United Against Slavery was created by a visionary who saw the need of compiling stories of survivors and advocates who work with them. The founders saw the challenges between agencies and recognized it as a deterrent to helping survivors. Much prayer helped the team formulate a mindset of co-operation between stakeholders. The NOS was created by it's co-founder, with pertinent questions for data building to ultimately help survivors of human trafficking. I believe in their message. I have been impacted by the passion to help us get together and I have been amazed with the concept and the power of sharing data. As Christi shared her passion, more and more have come on board, thus broadening the scope. I am honored to be in the background cheering them on. Only God knows how many will be impacted by their work.

Thank you Sean! You have been a faithful advisor for more than half of our journey at UAS. Your expertise on communications and development in the nonprofit space has been so greatly appreciated. I don't know what we would have done without the time you committed to our mission. As you expand your business model to communications programs for churches and nonprofits, we know that they will be better for working with you and your expertise! Thanks my friend!

We genuinely appreciate all that you have contributed to UAS. Having your input created numerous survey questions that will be included on the National Outreach Survey. We hope this data helps stakeholders in Camaroon as much as it will help others in different countries. You are a treasure and a hard working individual to advance human rights for those around you! Thanks again for your review! :-)
