Who We Are

The Center for Combating Human Trafficking (CCHT) is a team of survivor-leaders and long-term multidisciplinary professionals who represent more than ten decades of combined personal, direct practice, advocacy, and research expertise in the Runaway and Homeless Youth and Anti-Trafficking Movements. Together, we are committed to empowering the nation’s capacity to provide effective prevention, assessment, identification, intervention, restoration, and aftercare/prosperity promoting responses to young people who are survivors of the streets.

CCHT is unique in that we don’t just believe in “rescuing” victims but rather, respecting, empowering, and promoting prosperity among survivors. Towards this endeavor, we are proud to have a variety of partnerships, disciplines, and areas of expertise represented on our team. From across our own WSU campus to our local, regional, national, and international community partners, we rely on a variety of survivor-leaders, faith-leaders, staff, and faculty.
