In 1998, U.S. Congresswoman Linda Smith witnessed the brutal exploitation and sexual slavery of women and children in Mumbai, India. She established Shared Hope International to rescue and restore women and children enslaved in sex trafficking.


Shared Hope International strives to prevent the conditions that foster sex trafficking, restore victims of sex slavery and bring justice to vulnerable women and children. It provides comprehensive research, expert testimony, coalition support and advocacy initiatives that strengthen trafficking laws and build better policies in order to protect victims and prosecute traffickers, buyers and facilitators.
