The American Society of Criminology is an international organization whose members pursue scholarly, scientific, and professional knowledge concerning the measurement, etiology, consequences, prevention, control, and treatment of crime and delinquency. The Society’s objectives are to encourage the exchange, in a multidisciplinary setting, of those engaged in research, teaching, and practice so as to foster criminological scholarship, and to serve as a forum for the dissemination of criminological knowledge. Our membership includes students, practitioners, and academicians from the many fields of criminal justice and criminology.
The Society conducts an annual meeting devoted to discussions of topics of general interest. The 2019 meeting will take place November 13 – 16, 2019 in San Francisco, CA at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. The theme for the meeting is Criminology in the New Era: Confronting Injustice and Inequalities.

Holding Space: Innovation and Values in Anti-Trafficking Work
The 2020 FNUSA Conference will take place on March 18-19 in Miami, FL. This year we will explore how anti-trafficking work has grown and evolved since the passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act in 2000. Twenty years later, survivors are receiving more compassionate and effective services and advocates have forged pathways to influence policy. Community leaders across the country are developing new approaches, tools, and partnerships to address human trafficking. These innovations are changing the way we work together and our collective impact.
However, some challenges linger. Survivors still fight for a seat at the table, collaboration remains difficult, and entire populations are overlooked and underserved. As awareness of human trafficking increases, prosecutions are down and human rights protections are being stripped away. Using conference sessions, networking time, and physical space, we will confront these challenges and build solutions that are intersectional, representative, and rooted in human rights.
Join the National Crime Victim Law Institute on June 18-19, 2020 in Portland, Oregon for the 2020 Crime Victim Law Conference, the only national conference focused on rights enforcement in criminal cases.
