is a collaborative, community- wide event to raise awareness about human trafficking. A team comprised of representatives from local churches, businesses and the City of Eden Prairie’s Human Rights and Diversity Commission are working together to plan this event in cooperation with local anti-trafficking organizations.
Human Trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. It is considered to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world.
Our cities are personally affected by human trafficking including the sexual exploitation of children. The average age a child enters prostitution in the United States is 12- 14 years old and at least 100,000 children are exploited every year within our borders. In 2003, the FBI identified Minneapolis as one of 13 cities with a large concentration of child prostitution enterprises.
Our goal through this 5k walk/run is to join together as a community, raise awareness and engage in the fight to Stop the Trafficking. All proceeds from the race will be designated towards organizations working to help sexually exploited youth in our surrounding communities.
