Framing the Fight against Human Trafficking provides a rare and fascinating look at the range of organizations engaged in the fight against human trafficking. Dr. Clark studies the leading US coalition focused on the issue, the Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking (ATEST), and its organizational members. By adopting a relatively narrow strategic focus while avoiding narrow ideological commitments, the Alliance has managed to endure and grow with a diverse set of organizational members. She demonstrates that this unique coalition has been able not only to achieve remarkable success (e.g., all 50 states now have anti-trafficking policies), but also to help member organizations. The diverse organizations involved in the coalition, some focused on sex trafficking and others on labor trafficking, some on international and others on domestic trafficking, have shared strategies and tactics with one another, expanding their strategic repertoires. The book skillfully employs research and scholarship on social movements and coalitions to demonstrate how coalitions can succeed, and how organizations can learn new framing and tactical strategies from coalition partners. This is the definitive book on the anti-human trafficking movement and will be of interest to policy-makers, scholars interested in social movements and public policy, and the general public.--Nella Van Dyke, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Merced
