Super Bowl XLVII and sex trafficking

 not buying it

Justin Holcomb writes at The Resurgence about the Super Bowl being a magnet for sex trafficking and child prostitution:

The 2010 Super Bowl saw an estimated 10,000 sex workers brought in to Miami, while the 2011 event resulted in 133 prostitution-related arrests in Dallas. …

What is driving this horrible exploitation …? The key is that demand increases as men flood into a city for a weekend of fun. Without an eager market willing to pay to enjoy the exploitation of women, sex trafficking and child prostitution would have no reason to exist. …

If you are moved to take action against modern-day slavery, the answer is not to boycott the Super Bowl. Instead, here are 14 things you can do to fight human trafficking and help victims. You can also read about how churches can work toward ending trafficking in their city.
