Understand the truth about sexting and its connection to sextortion, child pornography and juvenile cyber-sex trafficking.

Minnesota’s recent largest child pornography case began by soliciting photos from 171 unsuspecting high school boys on social media. Learn how this happens, answer the question: is it happening here?, how to recognize and help someone being exploited, and an introduction to local prevention, outreach, and support programs and resources.
