    Cette description du travail de Derek Ellerman a été rédigée lors de sa sélection comme Fellow Ashoka en 2004.
    Derek Ellerman is building a citizen movement to put an end to human trafficking in the United States. Over 20,000 foreign nationals are trafficked into the U.S. each year for commercial sexual exploitation and forced labor, and thousands of Americans are trafficking internally, mostly in the sex industry, within the U.S. This illegal multibillion dollar enterprise thrives in the shadows of major cities because the criminal justice system arrests the women as prostitutes but not the traffickers who exploit them. Polaris Project helps law enforcement and communities crack the private networks to reach the victims, builds public awareness, and promotes laws that go after traffickers and their assets.
