Flag on the Play: N2 Publishing Teams With It's a Penalty to Combat Human Trafficking
New partnership harnesses the power of sport to protect children and women from exploitation
By: N2 Publishing
"We are delighted to partner with N2GIVES for our next global campaign to prevent the trafficking and exploitation of children and young women, including the Super Bowl Atlanta LIII 2019," says Sarah de Carvalho, CEO of It's a Penalty. "Together, we can make a difference and help end human trafficking."
An international initiative, It's a Penalty works with governing bodies of sport organizations, hotel partners, major airlines, local and international NGOs, and other stakeholders within the global sport arena to highlight the horrific existence of child abuse and exploitation – a crime all too easy to get away with when enormous crowds of out-of-towners feed into one geographical area.
According to research by the University of Dundee, the demand for children and women in the sex trade rises when a global sporting event takes place. N2 Publishing created N2GIVES to support organizations that fight this horrific reality and to restore hope to those affected. By partnering with It's a Penalty, N2 hopes to have a hand in creating positive change in the world of sports and beyond by helping to raise awareness for the signs of child abuse and exploitation.
