Inspired by the leadership of Senator John McCain and his family’s legacy of public service, the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University advances character-driven leadership based on security, economic opportunity, freedom and human dignity around the world.
The McCain Institute’s Combatting Human Trafficking Program educates, raises awareness and implements action-based solutions to end modern slavery. Through collaborative partnerships, critical research and direct engagement with innovative programs, the Institute connects and convenes stakeholders to find strategies to combat human trafficking at local, state, national and international levels. The Program’s Student Alliance Against Trafficking unites and empowers student leaders to take meaningful action against human trafficking. Partnering with students on 40 campuses across the United States, the United Kingdom and Uganda, a snapshot of the impact of our partnerships can be explored in the 2018-2019 Student Alliance Yearbook.
