    Large Sporting Events + Sex Trafficking

    Large Sporting Events + Sex Trafficking

    We know you probably are all aware that the Arnold Classic is coming back to town this week. While this is an exciting event to those participating we want to bring awareness to another important factor of this event. 
    Large sporting events like this one also increase the amount of sex trafficking in our community. 
    To help us share this information we asked best-selling author and survivor leader, Theresa Flores, to join us on the Voices of Freedom podcast to share her expertise on this subject.
    Theresa also shares how she got involved with the Anti-Human Trafficking community and about the nonprofit she started called The S.O.A.P Project.
