The nation’s leading conference on juvenile sex trafficking
Registration is now closed.
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 2018 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.
If you are a survivor and you would like to receive survivor specific communications about the 2018 JuST Conference, please email Brittany@sharedhope.org.

This year, we’re thrilled to partner with the hip Town & Country Resort which was built as San Diego’s original convention center. After 60 years, they’ve recently renovated the campus and reestablished themselves as a beautiful oasis that celebrates the 60s in California, with style and a little pizzazz. We know you’ll love their contemporary twist on one of America’s most cherished decades, as well as the great rates! In order to accommodate all budgets and room preferences, we are pleased to offer our attendees three options. Additional details, as well as photos, to assist your decision can be found on the hotel website.

All tables for 2018 are sold out, but opportunities for sponsoring the networking events are still available. Contact Brittany@sharedhope.org for more information.
Shared Hope International is supported entirely by private donations from individuals just like you, which means that the expenses of the conference are covered by tickets sales and sponsors. We’d love to have you or your agency become a top-level sponsor.
For more info about opportunities for event sponsorship at any levels, brand recognition (such as promotion at the annual Networking Happy Hour or other social events), and an easy way to connect with attendees, view our JuST Conference Sponsorship Prospectus or 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 U.S. All donations contributed towards registration scholarships are utilized for conference registration tickets. Our survivors are an amazing group of leaders with 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 the JuST Conference event, or the attendance of a Survivor or other professional, you may do so with a donation of any amount at the following link by directing the gift to Where Needed Most.
