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 3rd Annual Bakken Human Trafficking Summit will focus on navigating the intersection of exploitation, while offering applicable tools, methods, and insights to assist those affected by human trafficking.

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 June 7th and 8th in Dickinson, ND. Breakfast and snacks will be provided. Attendees will have a mid-day break to get lunch on their own.
