Biography

Bradley Myles serves as CEO of Polaris, a global leader in the fight to eradicate human trafficking and to restore freedom to survivors. For the past 15 years, he has devoted himself to combating human trafficking and modern slavery on a local, national, and global scale. Mr. Myles' early efforts focused on directly serving survivors, researching local human trafficking markets, and helping to build Washington DC's first-ever Human Trafficking Task Force. Under Myles' leadership, Polaris has worked to strengthen the U.S. national movement against human trafficking through policy advocacy in all 50 states and through a wide range of training and capacity-building programs. He also helped create and launch Polaris's operation of the United States national human trafficking hotline (1-888-373-7888), which has now identified and responded to more than 32,000 cases of human trafficking nationwide, and formulated a unique typology of the 25 major types of human trafficking that exist in the present-day U.S. This hotline and data hub model is now regarded as one of the best-functioning anti- trafficking hotlines in the world and has become a focal point of Polaris' growing global programs.
