The Super Bowl and Sex Trafficking

super bowlOver the past few days, I’ve seen quite a few posts on social media about the Super Bowl and sex trafficking.  I’ve even watched some boldly say they are boycotting watching the game because of it.  I have no doubt the problem of sex trafficking is real, but when people exaggerate the problem it causes people to trivialize it as concern.  I’ve listed a couple of links that are helpful to get the whole picture so we don’t unintentionally trivialize this horrible trade.
