Johns Hopkins Forms Alliance to Prevent and Combat Child Sexual Exploitation

The Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse at The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the bipartisan Advisory Council on Child Trafficking (ACCT) announce a new, formal alliance, building on the May symposium highlighting the need for more rigorous research addressing domestic child sex trafficking. The symposium was part of a White House initiative that was announced by President Barack Obama at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative. Findings from the symposium will inform the first order of business for the new alliance: a white paper detailing the ground-breaking work of leading researchers, policymakers, and advocates. The purpose of the forthcoming white paper and the new alliance is to chart an informed path forward for those working to end child sex trafficking in the United States.
