A.C.T. United (Anti Child Trafficking) is a 501c3 not for profit organization based out of Carver County, Minnesota, USA. We began in 2015 compelled to fill a gap in anti trafficking efforts by launching a unique, bold model of prevention. With space donated by a local church, we opened the doors, and filled the sanctuary hosting our first “Juvenile Sex Trafficking: Community Awareness to Action” event. We brought three things that were missing equal representation, in an already effective and growing movement to end human trafficking: a strong model of prevention for youth, the inclusive story of who is impacted by this health and human crisis, and a strong message and method of UNITY! As friends and partners, you have heard us say more than once…
“We will not end the sexual exploitation and trafficking of youth by responding to it, we end it by getting ahead of it in prevention!”
"Uniting communities together in awareness, prayer, and prevention to end the sexual exploitation and trafficking of children and teens"
We approach youth sexual exploitation and trafficking from a public health perspective using the latest research as well as direct service experience and survivor expertise to inform our training and prevention strategies. Our strategies engage and equip the whole community and empower youth with the education, skills, and resources they need for real prevention, resilience, and leadership development.
