“BUY SEX, BUY RAPE” Sex Trafficking Prevention Campaign Launches Website During Super Bowl Week

Buy Sex, Buy Rape is a sex trafficking prevention campaign to help end the demand of men buying sex in prostitution. Many reports reveal tens of thousands of prostituted girls and women are trafficked every year into the host city of the Super Bowl or other major sporting events such as the World Cup. In fact, prostitution, sexual exploitation, and sex trafficking have reached a point of worldwide crisis. Some shocking statistics:

  1. 1.8 million new children are coerced into the sex trade each year in the world
  2. At least 100,000 and up to 300,000 U.S. domestic youth are trafficked within U.S. borders
  3. Average age of girls entering into prostitution is 12-14 years old

This sex trafficking prevention campaign aims to target men, informing and appealing to their better selves to not buy sex because they are fueling this sex trafficking crisis worldwide. Stop the demand, stop the rape!
