Shared Hope International
Demanding Justice Project – Summer 2013 (remote) and FALL 2013 (remote or in office)
Shared Hope International is a 501c3 nonprofit organization headquartered in Vancouver, Washington with an office in Arlington, Virginia (Rosslyn Metro). Shared Hope International works to combat sex slavery globally and restore the women and children who are victimized by this crime. Please see our website for a full description: www.sharedhope.org.
We have an immediate need for pro bono assistance with the Demanding Justice project. The Demanding Justice project grew out of the Protected Innocence Challenge and focuses on prosecutions of those who buy, or attempt to buy, sex with minors. The project will evaluate state and federal prosecutions of buyers, and will specifically analyze how demand is combatted in a few target areas. To complete the national research for this project, we will be tracking cases through various online search engines to identify cases where a buyer has been charged. We will then track the cases through to disposition or dismissal. Through online searches we have begun to identify individuals who have been charged with an offense for buying sex with a minor and we need pro bono assistance with accessing online court files (to the extent they are available online) to track the progress of each identified case. All of this information needs to be tracked and logged in our database where we are continuing to add cases as we identify them.
