USA - Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking - Video, Report, Fact Sheet +
For the last decade Shared Hope International has been combating sex trafficking around the world, advocating for enhanced legislation, and furthering victim identification and access to services. In April 2006, Shared Hope International partnered with ECPAT-USA and The Protection Project of Johns Hopkins University School for Advanced International Studies, to host the U.S. Mid-Term Review on the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in America. During the two-day conference several key issues were discussed, including:
Victim misidentification as child prostitutes rather than victims of sex trafficking.
Lack of safe and secure shelter options and access to appropriate services by victims.
Need for training resources to increase education and understanding of victims’ plight and profile.
