Domestic Child Sex Trafficking

Child sex trafficking occurs every day across the United States and can happen to any child. Children involved in child welfare and the juvenile justice system are particularly vulnerable to becoming victims. The NCJFCJ believes juvenile and family court judges can play an important role in identifying child sex trafficking victims and stimulating community and systems collaboration to better serve victimized children.
 
The NCJFCJ has partnered with the Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and Rights4Girls to create training programs and publications and to offer technical assistance to judges on this important issue.
Originally adopted by the NCJFCJ Board of Trustees in February of 2013 and revised and re-adopted on March 24, 2016, the resolution addresses the power judges have to help prevent child sex trafficking.
