Our team includes students, faculty, organizations, institutions, and advocates around Minnesota and across the United States and the world. My youngest daughter was 13, the average age of victims, when I first became aware of trafficking in Minnesota and this propelled me to explore how design can be used in the fight against trafficking and toward the creation of Culturally Enriched Communities, healthy and connected communities in which everyone can thrive.

Support for designagainsttrafficking.com was provided by the University of Minnesota’s Imagine Fund.
