Youth Engagement Forum
Saturday, May 30, 2015
8:30 am to 12:30 pm
The Crowne Plaza Riverfront, St. Paul, MN
Some of the most valuable assets we have in the fight against sex trafficking are the energy and compassion of our youth. This year the Demand Change Project will honor the dedication and commitment of local youth; by inviting your full participation in the conference, including a day of special programming for young abolitionists ages 14-23.
For the Youth Engagement Forum, Breaking Free will partner with Gustavus Adolphus College’s social justice theater troupe, I Am We Are, to creatively engage youth in learning about the signs of sex trafficking and how you can intervene safely and effectively. Join us!
