Shared Hope International collaborates with artists, musicians, producers, television networks, government and policy leaders, anti-trafficking organizations, non-governmental organizations and others to create a strong, unified voice for the enslaved.
We are proud to list the following organizations as some of our most recent collaborators.
Sex + Money is a groundbreaking documentary about child sex trafficking in America. Shared Hope worked with the documentary crew to provide expert interviews, input and accuracy oversight. Shared Hope serves as the primary resource for Sex + Money activists seeking to learn more on the issue of domestic minor sex trafficking.
Shared Hope provided expert interviews and resources to Halogen TV for the production of Tainted Love, a new original series where victims and experts uncover the modern day slave trade of sex trafficking and human trafficking. Shared Hope is currently working with Halogen TV to produce a 20-minute mini-documentary for activists fighting against child sex slavery, slated for release January 2013.
End Child Prostitution Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes (ECPAT-USA)
ECPAT-USA is a long-standing partner of Shared Hope, assisting with the strategic development and implementation of policy reform and legislative action. ECPAT-USA is a leading policy organization in the U.S., notable for creating the ECPAT Code of Conduct, a code that sets a standard of responsible business practices for members of the travel and tourism industry to deter child sexual exploitation.
The Protection Project is a human rights research instituted based at the Foreign Policy Institute at The Johns Hopkins University. Shared Hope and The Protection Project have collaborated on policy and legislative reform initiatives and protective child response strategies.
Our America produced by the Oprah Winfrey Network provides an in-depth look at the most controversial issues in America. In the fall of 2011, Our America exposed the issue of child sex trafficking in the episode titled “3AM Girls.” Shared Hope staff joined Tina, a survivor of child sex trafficking, and Lisa Ling on the streets of Washington, D.C. to expose viewers to the prominence of child sex trafficking in America.
Shared Hope recognizes the importance of empowering parents to better protect their children in the community as well as online and we strive to provide the best resources and tools to make this possible. With the growing advancements in technology, the internet has become the new recruiting ground for traffickers and buyers. While we cannot offer expertise or advice on what software is best for your family, we can tell you about our partnership with Shield Genie, a parental control software package that helps protect children online. Shared Hope is collaborating with Shield Genie to educate parents about DMST and shield children from inappropriate advances by potential traffickers. Shield Genie is dedicating a portion of their proceeds to support the work of Shared Hope. Together, we are saving lives.
