What is STAMP?
With support from and in partnership with RedCompass Labs, the Stopping Trafficking And Modern-day Slavery Project (STAMP) research lab looks at the broad landscape of human trafficking, online child sex work, and modern slavery, which differentially impact women, children, and communities of color globally. Currently the STAMP lab is working to build financial algorithms to identify and disrupt human trafficking activities.
