Every 30 seconds another person is forced into human trafficking. It's difficult to imagine that trafficking happens in our own communities: it does. Throughout Minnesota sexual trafficking is commonly overlooked, misidentified and undocumented. Victims come through our doors though corrections, child protection, schools, hospitals, foster care, non-profits and more. Each of us has a unique role to play in ending sexual trafficking in Minnesota; it's time to come together. That's why on April 24-25 at Arrowwood in Alexandria, leaders from all disciplines will meet to form community coalitions to stop human trafficking in Minnesota at this Safe Harbor Kickoff Conference. The goal of this conference is to gather a wide array of professionals who are working throughout the state of Minnesota to end sexual trafficking with the hope of starting a cohesive prevention plan to identify and address sexual trafficking across communities. This conference will also provide information about the changes to Minnesota's laws related to sexual trafficking victims under the age of 18.

I am a 17 year old transgender youth. I am much more successful living on my own than with my mom, even though we still have a good relationship. I was staying in a youth shelter before I came to live here, at Lindquist.
