Super Bowl LIII
Atlanta is proud to host its third Super Bowl in February 2019.
There is a widespread myth that the Super Bowl is a catalyst for the largest human trafficking event of the year, when in fact, human trafficking occurs daily in response to the market demand of customers who want to buy persons for labor or sexual exploitation.*
According to the Urban Institute, Atlanta has the largest underground commercial sex industry among 14 major cities. This is why our three-year strategic plan in partnership with the private, public, philanthropic, civic, multi-faith and advocacy institutions, is focused on advancing long-term, cultural change to end the Demand for human trafficking.
Thank you to The Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee
