SUPER BOWL SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 7
OPEN YOUR UMBRELLAS TO INTERCEPT THE TRAFFICKERS
Male and female victims of human trafficking can be found in all types of establishments and locations--in rural, suburban and urban settings in the United States and worldwide. Victims are exploited by the service industries in restaurants, bars, strip clubs, nail salons, and similar businesses. Human trafficking is the second largest criminal industry in the world. Like any big sporting event, the Super Bowl can lead to increased demand for trafficking in persons for labor and sexual exploitation.
This Super Bowl Sunday, help us stop modern day slavery. Let’s intercept the traffickers and reverse the momentum.
United Methodist Women has asked church members to join the Intercept the Traffickers photo campaign and OPEN YOUR UMBRELLAS to raise awareness of human trafficking.
Under an umbrella, we are shielded from the storm and from the heat. Our Umbrella Defense will shield trafficked women and girls from the glare of insensitive bystanders, show that we care and encourage survivors to hold on a little longer and will form colorful ribbons of hope for more beds, more money and more prosecutions.
OUR UMBRELLA DEFENSE WILL BE A SIGN OF RECOVERING GRACE.
On Super Bowl Sunday, February 7, bring your umbrella to church so that we can bear witness to the strength of survivors and to our partnership in their journey to wholeness. We will take photos after the service.
Join us to open your umbrella and take your defensive position to intercept the traffickers so that justice can reign.
