ECPAT: Groundbreaking National Colloquium on Shelter and Service Evaluation

This past Friday, Shared Hope InternationalThe 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.

Don’t Forget TassaTags this Holiday Season
TassaTags are a 4″ x 6″ bright, hand-woven cotton luggage tag, hand made at the fair trade certified Regina Center in Thailand, providing women who work there with a decent income and job skills.  When you display a TassaTag on your luggage you become a living, walking symbol of the fight against child sex trafficking.  The $12 for each TassaTag supports the women in Thailand and ECPAT-USA’s work to educate the U.S. travel industry about how to prevent and stop child sex tourism.
