Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW)

The Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) is a non-governmental organization that works to end human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of women and children worldwide. CATW is the world's first organization to fight human trafficking internationally and is the world's leading abolitionist organization. A unique strength of CATW is that it engages in advocacy, education, victim services, and prevention programs for victims of trafficking and prostitution in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Europe, and North America, including in the United States.

A 2016 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported CATW's programs in the Philippines. These include policy and advocacy campaigns, education for young women and men, and empowerment programs for survivors.

A 2015 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported CATW's programs in Italy and Asia Pacific. In Italy, the program provides support and employment opportunities for Nigerian victims of trafficking in the country. CoR's grant allowed five women to attend a two-month training program. In Asia Pacific, CATW comprises the network of feminist groups, organizations, and individuals fighting the sexual exploitation of women in the region. It offers policy advocacy, research, education, training, and direct services to victims of trafficking. CoR's grant supported the program's disaster relief and recovery services.
