The Superbowl & Trafficking

So, I know it’s been a week since the Superbowl, and it’s not really on anyone’s minds anymore. But, I read this article today and thought it was worth sharing. Many of you who are familiar with human trafficking know that large events, such as the Superbowl, attract a huge demand. Pimps will move their slaves to these locations, increasing the quota for the girls to fulfill.

This is an article about the work to combat trafficking in Louisiana this year. A survivor also shares her story, which makes this piece even more powerful.
