Everyday we see ways that can make a difference in the lives around us. Sometimes it just takes a simple act to have great impact. Be a hero to others, help us in the mission to rescue children, young adults and elevate awareness for those with no voice.



Breaking Free is the country's largest domestic non-profit and social justice organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating survivors of sex trafficking. Staff and volunteers go out into communities and rescue those enslaved in the life. Through a comprehensive Sisters of Survival program, these children, young adults and women break free from a life of oppression. Founded in 1996 by Vednita Carter, a survivor herself, Breaking Free works with law enforcement, the FBI, and launched The John School, a program for those who buy into the sex trade and are arrested. This school has become a model for other states.  Every year, Breaking Free helps over 500 women escape systems of prostitution and sexual exploitation through advocacy, direct services, housing, and education. Minnesota is on the FBI's top 10 watch list for sex trafficking.
