Each year, Shared Hope assigns a “report card” with letter grades of A, B, C, D, or F to each state’s efforts to combat child trafficking. Current report cards for each state are available online at’s State Report Cards web page https://sharedhope.orghvhat-we-do/bring-justice /reportcards/2017-reportcards/.

The report cards score each state’s efforts on criminalization of domestic minor sex trafficking, criminal provisions for demand, traffickers, and facilitators; protective provisions for children and criminal justice tools. Describe the scores the selected state achieved on these dimensions and briefly explain their meaning. What can this state do to improve its response to human trafficking? How would this change impact social services for victims of human trafficking? Consider health care, housing, behavioral health care, and personal safety.
