The Strategic Initiative to End Trafficking in Illicit Massage Businesses (IMBs) is one of Polaris’ disruption campaigns designed to dismantle the systems in place that enable human trafficking. The program works in dozens of jurisdictions across the country, consulting with service providers, law enforcement, policy makers, and the media on systemic shifts that would hold traffickers accountable while empowering survivors of illicit massage businesses. The initiative's work with stakeholder partners across disciplines and jurisdictions is to sustainably and systemically end trafficking in Illicit Massage Businesses.
Polaris is seeking a Community Organizer for its Strategic Initiative to End Trafficking in Illicit Massage businesses. As the Initiative begins to shift the national narrative around this issue more community groups are reaching out for information, resources, and training; more networks need to be mobilized and equipped to contribute to ending trafficking through their professional capacities. This position will be responsible for meeting these needs and anticipating how the Initiative can continue to mobilize, educate, and improve a general understanding around this type of trafficking and the survivor experience.
Working to disrupt an embedded system that profits on illicit activity means that the team needs to constantly adapt to the changing needs of this environment. This position will be ideal for someone who enjoys proposing and implementing creative approaches to complex problems.
