General Material
Published Date
November, 2014

The Protected Innocence Challenge is a "comprehensive study of existing state laws designed to inspire and equip advocates. Under the Challenge, every state receives a Report Card that grades the state on 41 key legislative components that must be addressed in a state’s laws in order to effectively respond to the crime of domestic minor sex trafficking. In addition, each state receives a complete analysis of this 41-component review and practical recommendations for improvement." This full report includes an introduction to the Challenge, Map of State Grades, 2014 Legislative Advancements, Protected Innocence Legislative Framework Methodology, and a number of issue briefs.
