A Northland woman is taking a different approach to helping victims of sex trafficking.

Reyna Crow is with the group “Idle No More Duluth” and shared her ideas with students at University of Wisconsin-Superior Thursday afternoon.

She’s calling it a grassroots approach.

The goal is for experienced community members to be flexible and reach out to help survivors find a safe place, and reintegrate them into society.

“We stigmatize survivors and we enable predation that silence is an atmosphere where crime thrives,” said Crow.

She believes it takes an entire community including agencies, shelters, and police to help a survivor recover from a traumatic experience like sex trafficking.
