How to talk to your teens about sex trafficking

For parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts and other concerned adults, find out what is happening in your neighborhoods and how to talk with your children and teens about sex trafficking from experts on the front lines of this battle. 

Carter Staaf, an Eden Prairie police detective, will give a firsthand account of what sex trafficking and exploitation looks like in the metro area, and what parents and guardians can do to protect their children from deceit and abuse. He has over 21 years of police experience and currently works with detectives, prosecutors and advocates around the metropolitan area in the fight against sex trafficking in Minnesota.

Jessica Bartholomew, founder of Anti Child Trafficking United, will share some practical advice on how families can have meaningful conversations with their children about how sexual exploitation happens, and how their teen can be transformed from a potential victim to a strong and courageous guardian.

This event is free and open to the public. It will take place Friday, May 3, at 7 p.m. at the Shoreview Community Center, 4580 Victoria St. N.
