Public Policy

A firm understanding of the legal definition of human trafficking is critical to understanding the issue and helps to create clarity in the anti-trafficking movement.  Since the first human trafficking laws passed in Minnesota in 2005, MNHTTF has steadfastly worked to improve Minnesota’s laws and policies to promote victim safety and offender accountability.

The Minnesota Human Trafficking Task Force has a Legislative and Policy Committee that analyzes the human trafficking laws and policies in the state and makes recommendations for change.

Please see the Legal Statutes and Definitions page for more information regarding the current legal framework.
