A message from Jay Rodgers, Deputy Minister, Families
The sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of children and youth is a serious concern in Manitoba and around the globe. Sexual exploitation has serious adverse impacts on victims, families and communities, and ending this abuse requires the collaboration of individuals, communities and governments.
March 15, 2018 is Stop Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness Day. To mark this important occasion, the Westman Team Against Sexual Exploitation, supported through Manitoba’s Strategy to Combat Sexual Exploitation, is presenting a free full-day awareness event in Brandon, Manitoba at the Clarion Hotel. This event will feature speakers to raise awareness about sexual exploitation and human trafficking, musical performances by the Sweet Medicine Singers, and provide great networking opportunities for staff and organizations involved in this important work.
