My Sister will appear in a pop-up shop at Showroom on Thursday, March 24. All sales of t-shirts, lip balms, tanks and jewelry at My Sister benefit the fight against sex trafficking.
Martin Patrick 3 in the North Loop is now providing space for My Sister as well, with all proceeds from the men’s line of shirts going to My Sister and its cause.
Since launching in May 2015, My Sister has employed a survivor of trafficking and has given more than $33,000 to MN Girls Are Not For Sale, The Link and Maiti Nepal.
According to the city of Minneapolis, a 2010 study estimated that each month in Minnesota at least 213 girls are sold for sex an average of five times per day through the Internet and escort services. The average age of entry into prostitution or sex trafficking is 12-14 years old, according to the city, and half of juvenile victims are classified as runaway youth living on the street.
The March 24 pop-up runs from 5-8 p.m. at Showroom, 615 W. Lake St.
