First, let’s address some undeniable facts:
FACT: Human trafficking is the fastest-growing, and 2nd-largest criminal enterprise in the world.
FACT: The USA is one of the main origins and destinations.
FACT: It’s estimated* to be a $38-50 BILLION dollar a YEAR industry in the USA alone.
* No one knows the real numbers, because most of it is unreported.
FACT: Human trafficking happens all the time, in every community.
FACT: Although it can happen to anyone from any walk of life, gender, or age, a significant percentage of trafficking victims are children.
FACT: Large events - like the Super Bowl - increase the demand, and therefore the supply.
FACT: Southern California has always been a hotspot. Its proximity to the border, as well as its popular entertainment industry makes it a prime location.
FACT: If more people knew what to look for and how to safely intervene and report human trafficking, more victims could be rescued and even prevented from harm.
Even if it was only happening to a few children (which is a wild underestimation) … why would anyone deter anyone from taking it seriously?!
How much more of a difference could we the people make if we stood together and said “no more!”?
How much harder would it be for predators to operate?
Thank You to Our Allies at UNTRAFFICKED.org for Taking Action!
Our joint operation used a technique called "geo-fencing" that targeted all communication devices within a 10-mile radius of the Super Bowl with intel on what to look for and how to safely intervene and report child trafficking.
