There is a plan in place to combat sex trafficking during the Super Bowl in Minneapolis.
The 40-member group has a plan that includes billboard campaigns and statewide law enforcement stings. The effort is estimated to cost about a million bucks!
The group consists of representatives from counties, nonprofits, hospitals, businesses and law enforcement who have spent the past nine months planning.
Everything from bus drivers to volunteers will be trained to identify sex trafficking. The effort also includes providing more emergency shelter beds, increased street outreach and a tip hotline for possible trafficking.
The Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee for Minneapolis in 2018 has asked the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota to help lead the efforts against sex trafficking.
