UPENN Participates In  Shared Research Published on Trafficking and Youth Homelessness; though still excludes local survivors 

New Research Concludes: Key to ending trafficking of young people is to eradicate youth homelessness first. For decades, one set of activists and legislators have fought to end human trafficking, while a different set have worked tirelessly to try to end homelessness.
