HOUSTON - This weekend’s Super Bowl is likely to transform the entire city of Houston into one huge party, yet it’s also considered the largest human trafficking event of the year by victim advocates.
“Traffickers know. Pimps know. They bring women in,” said Sam Hernandez, with Elijah Rising, a non-profit devoted to ending sex trafficking and sexual exploitation through prayer, intervention and awareness.
The Super Bowl “increases the amount of prostitution and human trafficking that is going to happen, more than any event we see,” Hernandez said.
