The Arizona Attorney General’s priority to end trafficking of youth in Arizona led to the 2011 formation of the Arizona Attorney General’s Underage Sex-Trafficking Coalition to raise public awareness, educate the community and advocate to strengthen local, regional, and state laws relating to human trafficking. Arizona Attorney General served on a coalition with Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and others to draft legislation that will raise the penalties for those who use youth for profit in the commercial sex trade. The Attorney General is coordinating strategies to stop human Trafficking, train law enforcement, and create awareness to improve overall public safety.
Shared Hope International has been a leader in Arizona anti-trafficking efforts since 2009. Shared Hope advocates for stronger laws by hosting the 2011 SHE! Counts Advocacy Day in partnership with Arizona Foundation for Women; providing an annual analysis of Arizona state laws on domestic minor sex trafficking and offering practical recommendations through the national Protected Innocence Challenge; testifying at the Governor’s Human Trafficking Task Force; and documenting cases of buyers of sex acts with minors through the Demanding Justice Project to inform policy opportunities. Shared Hope hosts and presents at numerous trainings in Arizona, equipping law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, child welfare and community members to effectively identify and respond to the crime.
