A blog by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration about justice and peace issues

Many of us would probably never guess but 100,00 – 300,000 people are trafficked in the United States every year. One of the biggest draws for trafficked girls and women is the Super Bowl which will be happening in two weeks in Dallas.

Besides just celebrating your favorite team or secretly celebrating that the season is over (whichever side of the aisle reflects your interest), we can take this upcoming Sunday to celebrate human rights and take action for women and girls.

The link below leads to a great site that has educational materials, videos, a petition to sign and faith-based materials that can be shared. All of the tools will help reduce the risk for women and girls who may be trafficked and forced into sex slavery at the Super Bowl.

I invite you to check it out and share it, too! Let’s celebrate human rights with the same enthusiasm we have for our favorite teams! Peace…
