That’s right. Here, in America, we have plenty of human trafficking—and apparently the Super Bowl is the biggest day of the year for it.
“The Super Bowl is one of the biggest human trafficking events in the United States,” says Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. Thousands of children, mostly young girls, will be transported to Texas this weekend to be raped repeatedly by men looking for a good time before, during, and after the Super Bowl.
And the Super Bowl committee, when invited to help fight the practice, has turned a blind eye to it. Organizations like Traffick911, with the help of football stars like New England Patriot Devin Wyman, have contacted the committee, pleading with them to take a stand. They’ve offered free materials—such as posters, banners, and other awareness items—to the committee to use in helping to stop the practice of child trafficking and rape during the Super Bowl (and elsewhere). How hard could it possibly be to make a statement and put up a few flyers?
Thankfully, Attorney General Abbott and other law enforcement members of Texas have been trying to prepare for the event by putting all of the measures in place to identify trafficking victims and rescue them this weekend rather than allow them to be exploited. That said, without the help of the Super Bowl committee, it’s going to be harder than it should be.
Please contact the Super Bowl committee today and ask them to help take a stand against child trafficking and child rape during the Super Bowl on Sunday. This is simply not acceptable, and the fact that they’re ignoring this heinous issue—which has been increasing in recent years—is simply outrageous.
