Gemeinsam gegen Menschenhandel e.V., Berlin
"Together against Human Trafficking" is an alliance of more than 40 organisations and initiatives as well as some committed individuals who work in different ways against human trafficking.

Others have opened a so-called "Freedom Business", which enables them to offer affected and particularly vulnerable people a job and thus their own income; improvement of the legal framework in Germany by supporting measures that improve the criminal prosecution of traffickers as well as victim protection and compensation.
