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. ”

PRESENTER APPLICATIONS

The 2022 JuST Conference Call for Presentations Application is now open! Please review ALL instructions carefully as we have made some changes to our policies. Click here to review the 2021 Conference Program.

 We will continue to employ fewer workshops with more advanced level content. The 2022 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.

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.

Sponsorship Opportunities

The JuST Conference has unique opportunities for you to share your resources with our national audience. For more information about event sponsorship at any level, brand recognition (such as promotion at the annual Networking Happy Hour or other social events), and an easy way to connect with attendees contact our conference coordinator. We would love to talk with you further about these options and how we may be able to customize them for you.

We also have another unique way to give back. Each year, we receive many requests for scholarships from our survivor network, which are funded by generous donors around the US. All donations contributed towards registration scholarships are utilized for conference tickets.

Our survivors are an amazing group of leaders with an unparalleled perspective and valuable contributions to the anti-trafficking movement. We’d be thrilled if you partnered with us in supporting their attendance! If you or your organization would like to sponsor survivor scholarships for JuST Conference attendance, you may do so with a donation of any amount at this link by directing the gift to Where Needed Most and listing “JuST Conference Scholarship” in the feedback section.
