It's A Penalty: Fighting Human Trafficking at The Super Bowl - 15 Jan 2019

The Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta is one of the most high-profile sporting events of 2019, and the incredible It’s A Penalty campaign are using this platform to encourage millions of people to stand up against human trafficking.

Globally, 24.9 million people are trapped in modern day slavery, with 4.8 million forced into sexual exploitation.

But It’s A Penalty are striving to change this.

Their 2018 Super Bowl campaign in Minneapolis reached over 16 million people, and their reporting hotline registered a 300% increase in calls reporting exploitation and trafficking compared to 2017.

And this year in 2019, we’re standing with It’s A Penalty in support and prayer.

The campaign, launched today, will run throughout the Super Bowl taking place on 3 February.

Over this time, take a moment to act, and pray:

ACT
