The Child Trafficking and Exploitation Work Group aims to prevent trafficking victimization, to develop effective child protection and child welfare responses to human trafficking, and to promote the collaborative response to all trafficked children using trauma informed, victim-centered, and strengths-based strategies. The group is made up of multidisciplinary stakeholders from across Minnesota who meet bi-monthly. The work group will aim to complete this work in Minnesota by October 2019.
