With a wave of people expected in February for the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, New Jersey will be at an increased risk of human trafficking. A summit in Trenton focused on officials’ efforts to combat trafficking and highlighted services available to victims and survivors.

Friday’s summit also had a goal of debunking myths about human trafficking, such as the claim that it only occurs in foreign countries or to foreign-born people.

“Perhaps one of the biggest myths debunked today is the misguided notion that only the poor, immigrants, or drug addicted can be trafficked,” Acting Attorney General John Hoffman said. “Anyone can be a victim of human trafficking regardless of race, age, gender, or socio-economic status.”

The state Department of Law and Public Safety announced it will offer a $350,000 grant to support services for all victims, such as shelter and counseling.
