It’s one of the biggest sex trafficking events in the United States. It may surprise you to know we are talking about this last weekend's Super Bowl game. Nita Belles of Oregonians Against the Trafficking of Humans is part of an effort to rescue young girls from a life of prostitution: “Sex trafficking and the Super Bowl are very much connected. They estimate it has been up to 10,000 girls that are brought down for the parties and the strip clubs.” Belles was part of the team working the streets with law enforcement to look for runaways.  Part of her arsenal is a book of pictures of missing girls. She and others go into areas frequented for prostitution and look for these girls. Last year, the team recovered seven girls during the Super Bowl.  16 others who were missing were taken home.
