Human Trafficking in Minnesota — Safe Harbor Systems Moving Forward

Join the conversation: Strengthen the response

Safe Harbor LogoSafe Harbor was implemented five years ago to create a no wrong door system of services and response for sexually exploited and trafficked youth. This two-day conference is to take Safe Harbor to the next level by enhancing relationships and collaboration among all individuals or agencies working against labor and sex trafficking or sexual exploitation, including survivors as partners in the response. 

This conference will help to define the vision for the future of Safe Harbor while continuing to embody its core values.
