A.C.T. (Anti Child Trafficking) United connects communities together for juvenile sex trafficking awareness, outreach, and prevention strategies.
We are located in Carver County, MN.
A.C.T. United began in 2015, by Lead Facilitator Jessica Bartholomew, as a call to the local church to become aware, equipped, and deployed into the work of ministry for the protection of children and youth.
With over 20 years of experience working with children, teens, and families in youth outreach, domestic and foreign missions, and 12 years as a metro area Police Officer, Jessica brings first hand information and experience to the issue of juvenile sex trafficking and exploitation. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of MN (1996) in Child Development with a minor study in Law, Criminology, and Deviance and a Certificate of Law Enforcement (2002) at Normandale Community College, MN. Jessica served 12 years in law enforcement as Patrol Officer and an Undercover Officer in human trafficking and narcotics investigations.
