No Such Thing Capitol Hill Event: Making Progress in the Fight to End Child Trafficking
June 23, 2016 @ 8:35 am - 9:30 am EDT

Rights4Girls invites you to join our panel of experts to discuss recent progress in the fight to address child sex trafficking and protect child victims in the U.S. The event will build on the momentum of the recent AP Stylebook revision to help solidify narrative change among leading media outlets toward trafficked and exploited youth, highlight federal policy efforts to address child sex trafficking in the U.S., and elevate promising practices in state and local jurisdictions that are working to protect child victims in recognition of the fact that there’s no such thing as a ‘child prostitute.’
