The Pacific Alliance to Stop Slavery (PASS), is a Hawaiʻi-based not-for-profit 501(c)3 whose mission is to stop human trafficking in Hawaiʻi and the Pacific. PASS provides services and advocacy to survivors of human trafficking, education and training to service providers on the identification of human trafficking victims, and awareness and prevention education for the community. PASS works holistically to combat human trafficking, building alliances with public interest legal services, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), churches, non-profit community organizations, domestic violence shelters, educational institutions, and law enforcement.
PASS maintains a firmly abolitionist alliance committed to ending human trafficking and focuses primarily on helping the survivors of sex trafficking while advocating for the strict prosecution of pimps and johns.
