This is not just a global problem! The FBI has identified the Twin Cities as one of the nation’s 13 largest centers for child prostitution (more local facts here: http://bit.ly/1ac9Yj1 ).

 

Let's visualize data about LOCAL human trafficking in MN with the goal of exposing attributes in order to:

 

(a) Identify perpetrator trafficking centers.

(b) Identify barriers faced by victims seeking help.

(c) Create wider public awareness.

 

Here are some data sets we can use:

 

(1) State Survey Data: http://bit.ly/104GswT

(2) State Call Center Data: http://bit.ly/12KXKef
