Children are being bought and sold for sex every night—in America. We, the church, have a mighty role in addressing and stopping this tragedy, if we are ready and willing. Join us for three days of inspiring speakers and workshops to gain practical knowledge on how to address trafficking in your community. The JuST Faith Summit draws on the success and leadership of Shared Hope International’s annual JuST Conference to bring learning and action to the faith community. Learn from survivors, law enforcement, prosecutors, recovery ministries, and experienced restoration home providers about the critical need to engage the church in this battle.
Shared Hope International is an anti-trafficking organization that provides leadership in awareness, training, prevention strategies, restorative care, research, and policy initiatives. Shared Hope hosts the JuST Conference—the premiere conference on juvenile sex trafficking—in Washington, D.C. each year, drawing hundreds of national experts, leaders, professionals, and advocates.

A national epidemic has been ignored for too long, a dark addiction fueled by instant access to pornography, spawning a commercial sex industry that is consuming our children. And everyone pays the price—the child whose innocence is stolen, the man who can’t overcome his addiction, and the society that bears the loss of both. Our world has been helpless to stop the tide because we, the church, have remained silent. Frozen in fear, in ignorance, in disillusion. But, together in our many faiths, we have the power to push away the darkness. Join us.
“I found the conference as a whole to be informative, inspiring, and emotional. I look forward to applying knowledge learned here in my continued efforts to provide services to youth involved in human trafficking.”
“I learned a great deal and was able to network with more people than I imagined. This was an incredible conference which I was extremely impressed by. Everyone was great and the passion for our cause was felt in every one. Excellent! Thank you!”
