We commit to bringing justice the oppressed involved in sex trafficking by writing and petitioning support for state policies and legislation. We provide comprehensive research, assist advocacy initiatives to strengthen trafficking laws, and build better policies to protect victims and prosecute traffickers, buyers, and facilitators. Our team authored and lobbied for thirty-one legislative changes, all of which are now in effect. Due to these legislative efforts proposed and pushed by our legislative supporters and partners throughout the state, for 4 out of the past 5 years, Tennessee was recognized as earning the highest score on the Protected Innocence Challenge of Shared Hope International. Tennessee has now passed over 40 legislative changes.
Restore Corps specifically identifies what gaps make it difficult for prosecuting traffickers, as well as where there needs to be more provision for victims. We currently host quarterly CSEM meetings with all stakeholders that deal with minorities in our area. During these meetings is where the gaps in legislation are identified, and we take this information to senators and begin the process of bringing justice to the system.
