Too often, juvenile victims of sexual exploitation are not found, not identified and not helped. Worse yet, sometimes they are found and identified, yet face further victimization.
Traffickers operate with impunity. They prey on the vulnerability of the victim. They use lies, fear, drugs and coercion to gain control. They promise love, money and dreams fulfilled. Then they buy and sell our children as commodities.It is a business driven by profits. If nobody paid for sex, sex trafficking would not exist.
The Hennepin County No Wrong Door plan is our call to action to protect our children by combating juvenile sex trafficking in Hennepin County.
