About the Minnesota Human Trafficking Task Force

The purpose of the Minnesota Human trafficking Task Force (MNHTTF) is to end human trafficking and other forms of sexual exploitation in Minnesota through a coordinated, multidisciplinary, statewide response. MNHTTF is comprised of governmental and non-governmental agencies and is an important resource for those working on the issue of human trafficking.

MNHTTF leadership is provided by a multidisciplinary Steering Committee comprised of representatives from governmental and non-governmental agencies. Agencies represented on the Steering Committee include: Catholic Charities, Gerald D. Vick Human Trafficking Task Force, Hennepin County Medical Center, Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual Assault Coalition, Minneapolis Police Department, St. Paul Police Department, The Advocates for Human Rights, The Family Partnership/PRIDE, The Link, Minnesota Department of Health, and the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.

MNHTTF also has seven committees working on specific areas of the statewide response to trafficking. All committees have representation on the Steering Committee. For more information about the committees please see the section on MNHTTF Initiatives.
