Help end the exploitation of our kids
The FBI has identified the Twin Cites as one of the nation’s 13th largest centers for child prostitution – the vast majority of them girls.
The Metropolitan Transit Police department is partnering with local child advocacy groups to raise awareness of the problem of sex trafficking.
