Last week, state Attorney General Ashley Moody announced that a Super Bowl champion will offer the keynote speech for next month’s Human Trafficking Summit.
Moody said that Chris Godwin, a wide receiver who was on the Super Bowl LV champion Tampa Buccaneers, and his wife Mariah Godwin will keynote the event which will be held virtually.
“I am ecstatic to announce Super Bowl LV Champion and Tampa Bay Buccaneer Chris Godwin as our keynote speaker for the 2021 Human Trafficking Summit. Chris was an invaluable ally and partner raising awareness about human trafficking before the 2021 Super Bowl in Tampa—and remains a great teammate in our fight to end human trafficking in Florida,” Moody said.
“With his assistance, we were able to provide airport employees, Uber drivers, local businesses and visitors in town for the game with information about how to spot and report the signs of human trafficking. I am excited for our registrants to hear from Chris and his wife, Mariah, during the launch of our summit on Oct. 5,” Moody added.
“In preparation for Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Chris Godwin worked with It’s a Penalty to help bolster Attorney General Moody’s campaign to spread awareness to travelers and local businesses about the signs of human trafficking and how to report suspicious activity,” Moody’s office noted. “The 2021 Human Trafficking Summit is launching Oct. 5 in a virtual format. The summit brings together local, state and national leaders working to eradicate all forms of human trafficking. Registrants will get an opportunity to participate in presentations delivered by subject-matter experts from across the country.”
The summit is expected to include at least 15 hours of presentations and workshops.
