Human Trafficking at the Super Bowl

What do you think of when you think about Super Bowl Sunday? Football, good food, friends, tailgating, funny commercials, and parties all come to mind. Here’s another one for the list: human trafficking. Some groups estimate that thousands of children will be trafficked in Dallas during the week of the Superbowl.

We were horrified to hear that number, and just as determined to do something about it. That’s why we are partnering with Traffick911 to fight human trafficking this football season. On January 31, we will help to train flight attendants and airport personnel to recognize and report cases of trafficking. There will also be a massive awareness campaign entitled "I'm Not Buying It".

You can help by spreading the word. Whether you’re texting, typing, or talking, tell everyone you know that human trafficking is happening on a major scale and we can help to end it.

If you see something suspicious, please call the national human trafficking hotline at: 1-888-3737-888.

  1. Dear flight attendants and airport personnel,
    This conference should be an incredible opportunity to learn how to save children who are being trafficked. Please attend, and please be attentive especially during flights surrounding the super bowl. You have the power to save lives!
    Thank you.
