We’re thrilled to announce that our 2017 JuST Conference is moving to a fun new location: New Orleans!
Shared Hope is committed to offering you an improved conference experience each year. While we have loved our four years in D.C., we’ve been limited by function space and available amenities. In light of our dedication to excellence, our desire to reach new professionals, and our commitment to keeping the conference affordable, we’re packing our bags and heading to The Big Easy. Here is a city that knows a little something about perseverance, strength and beating trauma. We hope you’ll get a taste of that spirit in October. But location isn’t the only change!
Securing more space means we can offer a broader range of workshops and a more well-rounded conference for all attendees. This year, we’ve ditched the pre-conference in favor of offering 2.5 days of training and plenaries that appeal to all professionals. We’re also pleased to offer breakfast, lunch, and free wifi access for every attendee. As usual, your ticket will provide entry to the full conference as well as the annual networking happy hour.
We’ll be selecting workshops that focus on skill-building, survivor experiences, cross-discipline collaboration, case studies and lessons learned in the areas of investigation, prosecution and therapeutic services.

Last, but not least, we picked a city that has the best music and cuisine in America! So, we hope you’ll get out and explore a little. The city is rich in history, entertainment, and local flair.
