The Super Bowl and Human Trafficking

There is a lot of talk about the Super Bowl and human trafficking. In our community, here in New York City, voices are being raised, actions are happening!  The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Human Trafficking Roundtable and partners have been careful not to conflate human trafficking with prostitution: while some prostitution is trafficking, not all is.

Our partners in at the Freedom Network USA have responded with a press release that addresses the question of sex trafficking and the Super Bowl and other large sporting events.

We commend the increase in talk about human trafficking, but remind people to dig deeper and learn more.  You can find more information about how the PC(USA) is addressing human trafficking by going to the PC(USA) Human Trafficking Roundtable.
