On November 6, in Washington, D.C., Shared Hope International will release the 4th Annual Protected Innocence Challenge—the most comprehensive study on state child sex trafficking laws. The findings will reveal which states are providing strong legal protection against trafficking and which states are falling behind their neighbors. This year, eight states have raised the grade but four states continue to receive failing scores.
