Attorney General Moody's Week In Review
This week, I announced Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin as the keynote speaker for the virtual 2021 Human Trafficking Summit. Chris will be joined by his wife, Mariah, to kick off the launch of this year’s summit—which will include more than 15 hours of presentations by speakers from across the nation.
In preparation for Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Chris joined our campaign to raise awareness about human trafficking and how to report suspicious activity. Chris was an invaluable ally and partner before the championship game and remains a great teammate in our fight to end human trafficking in Florida.
Through our aggressive efforts ahead of the Super Bowl, we were able to provide airport employees, Uber drivers, local businesses and visitors in town for the big game with information about how to spot and report the signs of human trafficking. We learned so much from this massive, coordinated effort to stop human trafficking and I am so excited for our registrants to hear from Chris and Mariah about their contributions during the launch of our summit on Oct. 5.
You can learn more about the event and how to register by visiting HumanTraffickingSummit2021.com.
If you suspect or witness an instance of human trafficking, immediately contact local law enforcement and then call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1(888) 373-7888. By working together to learn the signs of human trafficking and how to report it, we can end this inhumane practice, rescue victims and build a Stronger, Safer Florida.
