Recognizing the transformative potential of data and technology, PJMF invests in organizations operating at the intersection of artificial intelligence and data science with a focus on advancing social good.

Allies and PJMF share an optimistic vision for a world where technology advances equity and justice — specifically, a future where every community has the data they need to combat and prevent human trafficking. We are privileged to partner with the PJMF team who wants to build that world together.

In the words of PJMF President Vilas Dhar, "As we learned more about your work in our diligence process, our team…[was] particularly impressed by the Allies Against Slavery cross-sectoral data partnership model, as well as the significant interest in platform expansion across government and survivor-centric agencies. We look forward to following the ongoing expansion of your work as it extends across the US."
