Tickets     Agenda      Presenting     Sponsoring

This unforgettable and inspiring conference features today’s most pressing issues in the anti-trafficking field. Presentations and workshops focus on skill-building, survivor experiences, cross-discipline collaboration, task force development, case studies and lessons learned. The JuST Conference continues to stand by the motto that each person has a role to play in preventing and ending commercial sexual exploitation, and that a collaborative community response is critical.

Whether you are just getting started or have been working on the issue for years, we have something for everyone. Our training conference strives to provide intermediate or advanced presentations including core subjects as well as hot topics, criminal trends, and material rarely-seen at other events. With new speakers each year and an array of powerful new workshops, JuST 2020 will not only educate you, but also inspire action and expand your network. Join experts and professionals from across the nation to learn practical ways you and your agency can create sustainable changes and leverage your resources to tackle sex trafficking from all angles.

 In response to attendee feedback, this year we will be employing fewer workshops with more advanced level content. The 2021 JuST Conference will be seeking applications from individuals with deep experience in unique topics related to Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST).

To ensure that SHI conferences stay on the cutting edge, this year, we will be enlisting field experts to review applications of each area represented.

Who will be your Audience?

JuST Conference attendees are leaders in their communities, many with over 10 years of experience. They have diverse professional backgrounds including, but not limited to survivor leadership, law enforcement, social services, criminal justice, policy, social work, healthcare, community activism and education. They are interested in specialized and advanced presentations including core subjects as well as hot topics and criminal trends.

Workshops on HT 101 will not be considered in our field expert review. All workshops must pertain or connect to the subject of juvenile sex trafficking within U.S. borders (citizen or non-resident) – through prevention, intervention, investigation, prosecution, therapeutic services, etc. Workshops that do not make the connection to this subject will not be considered.

In 2020, Shared Hope hit “pause” on our regular JuST Conference content to bring you a special series from the Shared Hope Institute for Justice and Advocacy – JuST LIVE! State Action. National Change. webinar series.

The series of free webinars introduced 6 key issue areas that form the advanced legislative framework for the Reports Cards on Child & Youth Sex Trafficking, which the Institute for Justice & Advocacy released in November 2020.

 The JuST LIVE! State Action. National Change. webinar series tracked these issue areas with two presentations keyed to critical aspects of advancing protections for child victims under each issue area.
