Whether you live or work in the host city, are attending the game, or even watching at home, you can play a role in stopping this crime.
- Victims of human trafficking are often hidden in plain sight. Learn the signs and how to report suspected trafficking.
- Forced or coerced commercial sex work is still human trafficking even if prostitution is legal in the city or state where it occurs.
