Creating a Victim-Centered Response to Trafficked Youth
In 2011, Minnesota passed a law that decriminalizes prostitution offenses for youth under 18. The implementation of the Safe Harbor Law is a huge shift in our state, in terms of how we view and respond to victims of trafficking—similar to when our state changed our laws and response to victims of domestic violence. Attendees will learn about the law and the response that the community worked together to develop, "No Wrong Door to Services for Sexually Exploited Youth."
