Refuge. Support. Hope.

End Slavery Tennessee was founded and named to sound the alarm that human trafficking exists and is happening in our very own backyard. In the past decade, we’ve grown from raising awareness to providing survivors a place of healing and restoration.

Today, we better understand the complexity of trauma, the nuance of exploitation, and the impact of language. We’ve evolved, so it was time for our name to evolve as well. To better reflect who we are and the hope we believe in...

We look forward as
(an•COR•ah | /ˈan.ko.ra/ Tennessee)
Latin for anchor — meaning refuge, support, and hope.

Inspired by survivor experiences and voices, the name AncoraTN reflects the stability needed amidst the storm of trauma. AncoraTN is the foundation for planting seeds and nourishing the dream of a new future. As we embark on the next decade of work, we journey with survivors to achieve their dreams and relentlessly pursue our dream—which always has been, and continues to be, the eradication of human trafficking in Tennessee.
