Native women experience greater risk factors for being trafficked than any other groups. According to a report by the National Human Trafficking Resource Center, American Indian women represented 24 percent of prostitution arrests in Hennepin County, Minnesota, which is 12 times their representation in the county's population. Join us in Minnesota as we explore how to recognize and respond to the sexual exploitation and trafficking of children in your community. Take a unique, firsthand look at the impact the victimization has on a family from a survivor. Examine the dynamics of child sex trafficking, overcoming negative perceptions, and the dangers and impact that gangs and drugs have on tribal communities. Discuss new strategies for overcoming jurisdictional challenges, creating effective action plans, partnerships and responses.
