Who We Are
Stop The Traffik was set up in 2006 in London, U.K. to
Educate: raise awareness and understanding of human trafficking and what can be done about it
Advocate: engage with communities and professionals to create an environment where it’s harder to traffik, hide and exploit people.
Fundraise: financing Stop The Traffik projects and anti-trafficking activities around the world which work with advocates, those vulnerable to and those who have been, trafficked.
Stop The Traffik now has more than 1000 member organizations in 50 countries and tens of thousands of activists all over the world. Stop The Traffik Iceland is the Icelandic member organization.
The original Stop The Traffik: Iceland team was established in 2012 and campaigned against international child trafficking in the chocolate industry. After some success in this area, the original group was largely inactive for the next few years after some of the team relocated overseas. In 2018, we re-activated the organisation with some former and new members. Together we recognized new opportunities to join the fight against human trafficking in our home of Iceland and, with the help of our volunteers, set out to reinvent our organization and further the work.
