Superbowl

#TackleDemand

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.
