Breaking Free is a Minnesota-based, social justice/social change non-profit organization that provides exit strategies, housing and supportive services to those who are victims of Human Sex Trafficking AKA Prostitution, and Commercial Sexual Exploitation. We also combat the Demand for sex. The Goal of our Men Breaking Free program is to end the demand of sex for purchase while bringing social awareness and restoration for human dignity and integrity in both the buyers and the victims.

Standpoint is the premiere legal resource to domestic and sexual violence survivors, advocates, attorneys and others. Our experienced lawyers and advocates provide training, advocacy, and legal advice: free of charge, regardless of income. We understand the dynamics of domestic and sexual violence within the legal system. We strive to understand the world from the "standpoint" of marginalized groups to better serve our statewide community of survivors and the support networks surrounding them.

Each year Tubman helps nearly 25,000 people of all ages, genders, and cultural backgrounds who are facing relationship violence, sexual assault, exploitation, homelessness, addiction, mental health challenges, or other forms of trauma. Our mission is to advance opportunities for change so that every person can experience safety, hope, and healing.

At YouthLink, we have over 40 years of experience connecting young people ages 16-24 at-risk or experiencing homelessness with a community of resources and support. Whether it’s basic needs, like a hot shower or a warm meal, assistance with employment or educational goals, accessing mental and physical health resources, or finding supportive housing, we can help young people at all stages of their journey.

Informational Webinars

Legal Needs of Trafficking Victims

January 2nd

6:00 pm

Register

The legal and social landscape, as it relates to victims of trafficking, domestic and sexual violence, is constantly changing. Standpoint has seen a trend towards inhibiting the legal protections trafficking, domestic and sexual violence victims are entitled to under the law, including a lack of proper enforcement of orders for protection, minimal consideration of the impact of trafficking as well as domestic and sexual violence in custody matters, and discrimination in housing and employment. Two separate studies have found that the most significant factor in reducing domestic and sexual violence is the availability of competent legal assistance.
