Human Trafficking


Labor and sex trafficking are tragic and real injustices in our state, as Minnesota has one of the highest incidents of recruiting minor children into human trafficking in the United States. 

To get involved in working to end Human Trafficking in Minnesota, join the Basilica Voices For Justice Team.  Contact Janice  for more information. 

Local Organizations that are working to end Human Trafficking include:

Family Partnership (
Building strong families, vital communities and better futures for children

Advocates for Human Rights (
The mission of The Advocates for Human Rights is to implement international human rights standards in order to promote civil society and reinforce the rule of law. By involving volunteers in research, education, and advocacy, we build broad constituencies in the United States and select global communities.

Joint Religious Legislative Coalition (
Guided by God's vision of the common good as reflected in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions, JRLC mobilizes religious communities to influence public policy in Minnesota.
