You Can Help Tackle Sex Trafficking and Prostitution at the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is only a few days away and you can secure your place on the winning team by stopping the demand for sex trafficking around the Super Bowl.

Join the National Center on Sexual Exploitation and over 20 partner organizations in our #TackleDemand campaign!

For the past several years, there has been a lot of buzz around the Super Bowl and other large commercial sporting events about their ties to an increase in sex trafficking.

With so much attention and information, it can be hard to know what are myths and what are facts, but what is even harder to know is how to get involved.

Dawn Hawkins, our Executive Director here at NCOSE, recognizes the difficulty and potential confusion, noting, “This kind of activity happens at the Super Bowl, as well as similar major events known to attract large numbers of men from the Olympics to motorcycle rallies. The sad fact is that the demand for sex trafficking is a problem 365 days a year. But everyone, including sports fans, can play a role in combating it.”

You can visit our website to learn the latest research, learn more about your new teammates, and find shareable social media graphics with the hashtag #TackleDemand.

You can also pledge a one-time social media post to send the message that “Real sports fans don’t buy sex,” on the evening of the Super Bowl, below:

As Nita Bells, Founder of In Our Backyard notes, “Every citizen can be a part of the solution by talking about the human trafficking in our backyards and raising awareness. All the traffickers ask is that we remain silent. We will not remain silent.”

Raise your voice loud with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation and our many partners this Super Bowl season and 365 days a year.

While the players on the field tackle the opponent, we can #TackleDemand and regardless of the Super Bowl outcome, you’ll be on our team, winning against sexual exploitation.
