Training on the issue of human trafficking has become an incredibly important issue in Minnesota and around the country. As the incidence of trafficking continues to increase, there have been few reliable training resources to address this complicated problem. The MNHTTF does not endorse or recommend any particular individuals or organizations, but has identified the following local and national training materials, reports, and resources to ensure that reliable information is available throughout our state. Please also see the Local Trainers & Speakers page for more information.
