Past Project Highlights

Project TRUST was a collaborative grant between the Sanar Institute, USCRI, and Brandeis University’s Institute for Economic and Racial Equity. Through this grant awarded via the U.S. Office of Victims of Crime, Sanar provided training and technical assistance to stakeholders serving survivors of human trafficking. 

The Sanar Institute served as the lead subject matter expert in developing a first of it’s kind online and self-paced trauma-informed curriculum for the anti-trafficking field in the United States. The Building and Integrating Trauma-Conscious Engagement curriculum, resources, and additional webinars can be found in Sanar’s training portal.
