Super Bowl Child Sex Trafficking Risks

According to a 2011 FBI report, an estimated 293,000 children in the U.S. are at risk of being exploited and trafficked for sex. With the Super Bowl just around the corner, an advocacy group is making everyone aware of child sex trafficking.

“To understand the dynamics of human trafficking is to understand that events such as the Super Bowl should never not be breeding grounds for sexual exploitation,”

said Judy Kluger, executive director of advocacy nonprofit Sanctuary for Families.To make fans and locals more aware of these crimes, advocacy group Shared Hope International (SHI) has erected a life-size pink toy box and young female volunteers are taking turns standing inside of it for hours on end.

Kruger states that this is the best time to educate others about child sex trafficking to help save some of these kids.

“On the most basic level, any location that sees an exponential increase in large numbers of men traveling for entertainment will receive a proportional increase in those who purchase sex.”

The SHI will have the life-size pink box on display at Grand Canyon University, Glendale Community College and downtown Phoenix throughout the week leading up to Super Bowl Sunday.

Saturday’s event will be held in conjunction with StreetLightUSA, a local Arizona group that rehabilitates sex trafficking survivors between the ages of 11 and 17, according to a statement released by SHI.

Let’s spread the word to help save these children. These children are our future leaders. It is our jobs to help protect them.
