This past Friday, Shared Hope International, The Protection Project of The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies and ECPAT-USA convened experts from around the nation to assess our current capacity to address the needs of child victims of sex trafficking in the U.S. through the National Colloquium: Shelter and Services Evaluation for Action. Voices from policy, philanthropy, child welfare, non-governmental organizations and survivor leadership was heard as we hosted a dialogue amongst entities proficient in assisting this victim/survivor population. In the forum we evaluated various service provider practices that can serve as a guide to others and documented current capacity to respond to the needs of commercially sexually exploited children.
