North Metro churches hosting Anti-Trafficking Awareness & Engagement Forum

Brookdale Covenant, Community Covenant, Redeemer Covenant, The Sanctuary and the Daybreak Human Trafficking Task Force are joining together to host an anti-trafficking forum.

Brookdale Covenant Church, 5139 Brooklyn Blvd, Brooklyn Center, MN

Saturday, April 25th, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The sex industry is booming in the Twin Cities.

Recent research shows that the victims of sex trafficking are disproportionately girls from North Minneapolis and the near North suburbs.

As people of faith and people of the Book, we must engage.

We are called to be “Repairers of Broken Walls, Restorers of Streets with Dwellings” (Isaiah 58:12).

The work of anti-trafficking is for the whole church—women and men, youth and adults.

This work begins with us—within our families, our churches and our neighborhoods.

It’s time to come together.

Come together to gain awareness about trafficking in North Minneapolis and the near North suburbs. Come together as congregations in order to gain an understanding of the issue, and then work to create interventions in order to reclaim the dignity of our youth, our families and our neighborhoods.

Speakers include:

  • Linda EagleSpeaker, Sacred Journey Program Director, MN Indian Women’s Resource Center
  • Rev. Alika Galloway, Co-Pastor, Kwanzaa Community Church & Northside Women’s Space
  • Minister Geraldine Anderson, Trafficking Survivor
  • Sergeant Grant A. Snyder, Crimes Against Children Unit & Juvenile Trafficking Team, MPD
