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.
