BREAK THE SILENCE ON HUMAN TRAFFICKING BY WATCHING & SHARING THIS VIDEO
Did you know that Human Trafficking happens 365 days a year, in every zip code, even surrounding the Super Bowl?
Here at In Our Backyard (IOB) we don’t believe that Super Bowl is the largest human trafficking event. We believe human trafficking happens 365 days a year in every zip code across America.
However, large events like the Super Bowl encourage a party like atmosphere which often include the selling and buying sex.
This is why IOB and Executive Director Nita Belles has committed to anti-human trafficking efforts surrounding the last seven Super Bowls.
