This is the first episode of season two, where Uncovering the truth in Minnesota will attempt to uncover and discuss the sex trafficking activity occurring in the city of Duluth, Minnesota.
This episode provides basic facts and statistics on sex trafficking in the state of Minnesota and features an interview with Theresa Fortliti, an executive director of an outreach program in St. Paul, Minnesota and a sex trafficking survivor.
Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide – including right here in the United States.
We hope this episode will provide you with some insight into the criminal activity surrounding sex trafficking and provide a baseline of information in order to prepare for a deeper dive.
