Far too many states across America say children can still be arrested and criminalized for crimes related to their victimization.
But Shared Hope, empowered by your support and action, is working to change this tragedy — by way of our:
- Institute for Justice and Advocacy.
Here, we are building on the solid foundation of our demand and justice initiatives.
- State Report Cards.
Every year, we publish reports detailing legal analysis and recommendations for every state in the nation. We identify and address legislative gaps and encourage states to raise their grades.
- Grassroots advocacy efforts and the expertise of our policy team.
We are supporting states’ efforts to strengthen and implement laws effectively.
We will not rest until every state stops the criminalization of children for crimes committed against them and offenders are held accountable.
This means your tax-deductible contribution today will help Shared Hope continue our critical work to bring justice to victims, end demand, and hold offenders accountable … until all of our nation’s children are protected. Thank you for helping us end the tragedy of sex trafficking once and for all!
