Trafficking

#TackleDemand

This weekend the 53rd NFL Superbowl will be held in Atlanta, Georgia. Amongst the hustle and bustle that comes along with large sporting events, human trafficking, specifically sex trafficking, will see a spike in activity. While it has been hard to gain solid statistics on numbers of individuals who are trafficked during these kinds of events, anecdotal evidence makes it clear that it does happen. The influx of visitors, the celebratory atmosphere, and the potential for higher profits all work together to increase the demand for sex trafficking in these environments.

In 2016, the Texas State Secretary established the Texas Businesses Against Trafficking (TBAT) partnership for businesses across the state to stand together against human trafficking. This partnership encourages businesses to adopt a zero tolerance policy for human trafficking, train their employees on how to identify and report human trafficking victims, and encourage the businesses they work with to do the same. Three years later, there are only six businesses in the partnership, including 3rd Millennium Classrooms.
