Welcome to the Not-So-Super website, part of a campaign dedicated to raising awareness about sex trafficking that happens every day, including during large events like the big game.

WHAT IS SEX TRAFFICKING?

Sex trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry that exploits millions of women, men and children around the world. Sex trafficking occurs when criminals take advantage of a person in a position of vulnerability and abuse their power over that vulnerable person. Ways through which a person traffics another human being can include the threat of force, actual force, coercion, abduction, fraud or deception.

Sex traffickers frequently target individuals with histories of abuse, homelessness or in other situations of vulnerability. They then use violence, threats, lies, false promises, debt bondage or other forms of control and manipulation to maintain victims in the sex industry. Sex trafficking exists often at much larger rates than most people realize or understand. Sex trafficking is present in a broad spectrum of venues that define the sex industry, such as residential brothels, “hostess clubs”, online escort services, illegal massage businesses, strip clubs and street prostitution, to name a few. The sex trade is fueled by the demand for commercial sex; if we can stop the demand, we can end sex trafficking.
