Policymakers, Researchers and Advocates Meet to Address Needs of Child Sex Trafficking Survivors in U.S.

First-of-its-kind symposium to address victims of child sex trafficking in a multidisciplinary, bipartisan and public health framework

On May 1-2, 2013, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Advisory Council on Child Trafficking (ACCT) and the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women will host a symposium to address the needs of victims of child sex trafficking. The symposium is part of a White House initiative, first announced by President Obama at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative, to bring together leading researchers, bipartisan policy makers and advocates to identify gaps in research, best practices, and evidence to improve the lives of sexually exploited children.

The two-day symposium will address how mental health research, law enforcement, survivor advocacy, disruptive technology, epidemiology, criminal justice, and public policy can all inform the treatment of victims of sex trafficking. Day two of the symposium will be a closed session with numerous working groups to generate policy and research recommendations.

The symposium will be streamed live on web at http://www.jhsph.edu/sex-trafficking-symposium.
