Symposium, Human Trafficking: From the Global to Minnesota
The Women's Club
410 Oak Grove Place
More than 100,000 children in the U.S. are domestic victims of sex trafficking – primarily girls aged12 - 16. Shockingly, Minnesota has the 13th-highest proportion of sex trafficking in the country. Trafficking, using another human being for sexual exploitation or slave labor, is the fastest-growing criminal enterprise in the world, generating $32 billion a year, second only to drug trafficking.
Speakers include Dr. Ellen Kennedy, executive director of World Without Genocide, and Christine Stark, author, writer, teacher, and survivor. The focus of the symposium is to address recognition of trafficking in our communities, keep girls safe, support the criminal justice system in prosecuting perpetrators, and provide services for the survivors.
