The Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center has published two studies on the commercial sexual exploitation of women and girls in Minnesota, particularly in the American Indian community. Both reports have informed, educated and improved dialogue among care providers, law enforcement and community leaders and revolutionized the way this issue is being addressed in our state.
