Modern-day slavery comes in many forms from child labor in third world countries to human trafficking in your own backyard. The Super Bowl is considered the largest sex trafficking event in the United States each year, according to Forbes. But not every sex trafficker is bold enough to run an online ad.
“The real crime is happening when no one’s looking and no one cares, not when every media outlet, advocate and cop has its sights set on it,” writes Rachel Lloyd for the HuffPost.
The symbol of a red X is a poignant reminder to speak up when you see something unusual. The #ENDITMOVEMENT picked a day, Feb 27th , to SHINE A LIGHT ON SLAVERY, but every day is a day to end something that shouldn’t exist.
