I am a huge football fan, as I’m sure you can tell. But I recently learned about the dark side of the SuperBowl and it shocked me. While the SuperBowl brings thousands of fans to its location, it also brings a record number of pimps. According to Forbes (featured in the Huffington Post), 10,000 prostitutes were brought to Miami when the 2011 SuperBowl occurred in Florida.
By January 28, there had already been 200 arrests in the New York metropolitan area in anticipation for this year’s SuperBowl. While the SuperBowl is a magical day for football, today we must also remember that there could be thousands trapped in sex trafficking that will not be enjoying the SuperBowl today.
