In 2017 in Minnesota, 2,525 people were exploited.

There were also 401 trafficking investigations with 182 arrests and 96 charges.

1.3% of Minnesota's high school students traded sex for something of value in 2019. 


During spring 2020, Safe Avenues saw a 30% increase in calls.

Sexual exploitation is not only in Minnesota, it's right here in our rural communities.
