Girls United MN and The Link - Sexual Exploitation in MN

With the Super Bowl in Minnesota just a few weeks away, there has been heightened attention on sexual exploitation/human trafficking. Campaigns to battle sex trafficking have launched, partly in hopes of leveraging the extra attention that will accompany an estimated 1 million visitors to the state for Super Bowl 52. One campaign, called “I Am Priceless,” is from Minneapolis-based The Link, which provides services and housing for sexually exploited youths. Billboards, bus shelters, radio ads, and a downtown Minneapolis mural will target 10- to 14-year-old girls and boys with the message: “My body is not for sale.” Girls United MN, started at Hopkins High School, has joined in the effort to educate about and prevent sexual exploitation.
