Sex Trafficking at the Super Bowl

My friend Danielle Vermeer corrects a common misconception about massive sporting events like the Super Bowl: that they produce a marked uptick in sex trafficking for their host cities:

There are no credible, proven studies that show that sex trafficking does in fact increase dramatically in the city where the Super Bowl or other major event such as the World Cup is held. Certainly there are testimonies of victims who have been trafficked during major sports events, but inflating the numbers hurts rather than helps the cause and efforts to assist victims.
