Human trafficking is a thriving criminal industry, with traffickers making billions in profits by using force, fraud, or coercion to rob victims of their freedom. The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 20.9 million victims of human trafficking worldwide. The National Human Trafficking Resource Center hotline, operated by Polaris, received reports of 5,214 cases of human trafficking in 2013 (read more 2013 statistics here). The hotline is a lifeline for victims of modern slavery and a resource for community members to provide tips and request information.

"Polaris is excited to welcome Suzanne to our Board of Directors, where her expertise will be indispensable," said Bradley Myles, CEO of Polaris. "With Suzanne at the helm, Clear Channel Outdoor continues to make enormous contributions to the fight against modern slavery. Suzanne shares our passion to help people understand the issue and is using her voice and the media she commands to help. From donating billboard and poster inventory in numerous cities to providing invaluable insight into targeted awareness campaigns, Suzanne's impact demonstrates what can be accomplished when companies take proactive steps to combat this crime.”

Clear Channel Outdoor launched its first anti-human trafficking campaign alongside Polaris in Philadelphia in 2012 and has since supported targeted campaigns in Baltimore, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, New Jersey, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, and recently a statewide campaign in Texas in conjunction with Polaris, the FBI, United Against Human Trafficking, and Governor Rick Perry. Grimes has ensured Clear Channel Outdoor teams across the country have fully leveraged CCO’s diverse portfolio to make a difference in communities where trafficking is a serious problem.
