Shared Hope International exists to rescue
and restore women and children in crisis. They are leaders in a worldwide effort to prevent and eradicate sex trafficking and slavery through education and public awareness.
They do work to Prevent, Rescue/Restore and Bring Justice in foreign countries as well but I was drawn to them because of their efforts to reveal the truth behind Domestic Sex Trafficking of Minors in the U.S. Through their Protected Innocence Challenge they have assigned report-card grades to states for their existing laws and how well they protect children who have been sex-trafficked in their state. Michigan got and F. They have several video resources on the topic of sex trafficking that you can watch right from their site. You can even request a speaker to come and do training with your community leaders.
