Our mission is to help "find and free" human trafficking victims through strategic action with ordinary people.


The Exodus Road: India

The Exodus Road India Foundation exists to provide the staffing and resources required for targeted interventions to thrive in urban and rural areas throughout the country. TER India Foundation seeks to grow and preserve a strong presence in Asia by:

  1. Building on the work and momentum of existing operatives,
  2. Strengthening partnerships with local authorities, government agencies, and other counter-trafficking organizations, and
  3. Generating additional, more effective, undercover surveillance and rescue operations.  

Our Work

We fight human trafficking strategically and comprehensively. We gather evidence, utilize technology, support local police, and facilitate rescue operations and arrests. We also invest in prevention and awareness programs and survivor aftercare projects.

The Global Story

The Exodus Road is a nonprofit that helps local law enforcement find and free victims of human trafficking and arrest traffickers. With our headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO, we also work in India, SE Asia, and Latin America. We work hard to equip local communities to fight slavery in their own backyards, as well as encourage effective collaboration among those already working in the counter-trafficking space.




Through Strategic Action & Ordinary People

How we Started

While Matt and Laura Parker (co-founders of The Exodus Road) were living in SE Asia, they were exposed to marginalized people groups who were being targeted by traffickers to enter the sex industry. Matt began networking with local police and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to learn more about the prevalent problem. He soon realized how few organizations were actively looking for those trapped in modern slavery. In 2012, after building relationships for two years with law enforcement and NGOs in the area, as well as investigating over 250 brothels, Matt and Laura started The Exodus Road. They set out to empower and unite those already working in the counter-human trafficking field—specifically in the intervention space. Read “How We Started” for the full story.
