A movement to bring awareness and education of human trafficking with initiatives leading up to and after Super Bowl 52.
 

The 42: 7 PROJECT public events leading up to and after Super Bowl 52 will provide a tangible platform for all involved to showcase the positive answers they provide to stop human trafficking. This will include the presence of civic, corporate, non-profit, and faith-based entities, coming together to participate. Highlighted will be the unique mix of skills and resources that each bring to shed light, answers, and hope.

We are #MinnesotaBold. The 42:7 PROJECT will also highlight the bipartisan initiatives and collaborative efforts that have resulted in the “Minnesota model,” which has paved the way nationally for comprehensive strategies to combat human trafficking
