Safe Harbor For All Strategic Planning Process

We are pleased to share that The Advocates will be working together with Rainbow Research and the University of Minnesota's Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center to facilitate the statewide “Safe Harbor for All Strategic Planning Process” that was mandated by the Minnesota Legislature to outline recommendations for Minnesota’s responses for adult victims of sex trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. The final report is due in October 2018. 

The strategic plan will address relevant criminal issues, availability and access to prevention and intervention services for adult victims of sexual exploitation and trafficking, unintended consequences, and identification of intersections with other areas of oppression.

We have much work to do and there will be many ways to participate including one-on-one and group conversations, Art of Hosting style events, and an online survey. To join the mailing list, click here. For more information see the UROC website, here.

Right now, we invite knowledgeable experts, particularly those directly affected, to nominate themselves to participate in a Strategic Planning Process Advisory Group to help assure that our process is inclusive, open and successful in reaching stakeholders across the state. Click here for more information about the self-nomination process. The deadline for self-nomination is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.
