#HTchallenge: Help Us End It!

Sex trafficking is a big deal. Donating a single Tweet or Facebook post on Super Bowl Sunday is one small step towards helping us end it. Please visit halftimechallenge.net for all suggested images, statistics, and quotes to raise awareness before the Super Bowl.



Human trafficking is a f​orm of modern day slavery. It is a rapidly growing criminal industry, second only to drug dealing and equal in scope to arms dealing. Governments know that there is a risk of an increase in human trafficking around large sporting events.The problem of sex trafficking in New Jersey will not end with the Super Bowl, but the Super Bowl is a place to start.

The Strategy:

PLAN a party/event for Super Bowl Sunday, or if going to an event, contact the host regarding the following.

SEND #HTChallenge images and information to organizations and networks you’re involved with and encourage them to spread it to their networks.

CONTACT your friends, family, local businesses, churches, and groups you are involved with and encourage them to post on their personal social media.

POST POST POST! Starting now until the Super Bowl, post the images and tweets and increase the amount of posts as it gets closer and closer to the Super Bowl. Please only use the images and tweets that we have posted on this site (or below) and nothing else.

GAME DAY: On Super Bowl Sunday (2/2/14) …

  • TURN OFF the TV during the halftime show.
  • Give a 10 min talk about sex trafficking, giving statistics, information, how you can help, the hotline number, pray for the girls that will be trafficked that night, ask if anyone has questions, give our resource list and websites.
  • During halftime, the Thunderclap will automatically post ALL AT THE SAME TIME, using #HalftimeChallenge and/or #HTchallenge.


Here are some suggested posts for before Super Bowl Sunday:

For Twitter:
  • The FBI estimates 100,000 children are at risk in #NJ because of the #SuperBowl coming to NJ. Do your part: Take the #HTchallenge!
  • “The #SuperBowl is the single largest trafficking incident in the US.” — Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott #HTchallenge #SuperBowlXLVIII
  • Take the #HTchallenge today by telling someone these HT victim warning signs! http://www.polarisproject.org/human-trafficking/recognizing-the-signs. #SuperBowlXLVIII
For Facebook:
  • “It ought to concern every person, because it is a debasement of our common humanity. It ought to concern every community, because it tears at our social fabric. It ought to concern every business, because it distorts markets. It ought to concern every nation, because it endangers public health and fuels violence and organized crime. I’m talking about the injustice, the outrage, of human trafficking, which must be called by its true name – modern slavery.” — President Barack Obama #HTchallenge
  • “Set the captives free!” – Take the #HTchallenge & tell your friend or neighbor about human trafficking. Talking points here:
