In 2000, the founders of the non-profit Committee for the Civil Rights of Prostitutes had the far-sighted idea of creating the Stella Polare project – a welcome project in Trieste, a border city, to offer a concrete tool in the fight against the phenomenon of human trafficking human rights and, specifically, against sexual and labor exploitation in Trieste. The anti-trafficking project received immediate support from local institutions: ASUGI – Giuliana Isontina University Health Company and the Municipality of Trieste.

Since 2016 the Stella Polare project has merged into the current regional network ‘the FVG network against trafficking’ of which the Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region is the leader. The three implementing bodies composed of the Committee for the Civil Rights of Prostitutes in Trieste ApS, the Caritas Center of the Archdiocese of Udine and the Nuovi Vicini non-profit organization of Pordenone implement the Single Program of emergence, assistance and social inclusion.
