Bakken Human Trafficking Summit

Human Trafficking exists in North Dakota. The agencies, service-providers, and individuals working to address this issue face many challenges: educating the public, apprehending offenders, supporting survivors, and working towards prevention. The 4th Annual Bakken Human Trafficking Summit will focus on a variety of topics related to sex and labor trafficking, sexual exploitation, and more. This event, organized by North Dakota-based nonprofit 31:8 Project, features several keynotes, breakout sessions, and panel discussions to better inform the community about sex and labor trafficking in Western North Dakota. Our event speakers will include: law enforcement, healthcare professionals, human service representatives, and survivors of human trafficking.

The event takes place on May 21-22 in Minot, ND at the MSU Ann Nicole Nelson Hall located at 500 University Ave W.
Breakfast and snacks will be provided. Attendees will have a mid-day break to get lunch on their own. Continuing Education credit and hours available for professionals attending the Bakken Human Trafficking Summit. This event is open to the public.
