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.

WHAT ATTENDEES ARE SAYING

“It was great to interact with professionals and subject matter experts from all over the country. The conference was coordinated very well from my perspectives. All workshops I attended were high-quality.”

“I look forward to next year. I really appreciated the happy hour/networking hour in which allowed me to meet additional people in the field outside the training setting. It also allowed me learn about new models that others are trying to combat the issue.”

“It was very inspirational and motivating to see so many people coming together to address this horrible crime. (The conference) also allowed me to make connections with so many resources and hear victim stories. Educating the investigators for this type of crime with a victim centered approach helps to keep us focused…”

“The conference was coordinated very well from my perspective. ”
