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.

“This was such an inspiring and wonderful conference.I truly did learn so much and I appreciated hearing from survivors as well as experts who are doing amazing things to tackle human trafficking.It was an amazing experience.”

“Great presenters, great subjects, and a palpable shared passion for this important, but often difficult work. Made me feel rejuvenated and prepared to continue pursuing better outcomes for my HT survivors.”

“The conference is well organized and provides opportunity for every profession to engage in the fight while also allowing plenty of opportunity to network.”

“The thing I liked the most about the conference was the diversity of voices and approaches included; we got to hear from multiple types of system actors with different attitudes (on the subject).”
