Matt Hasselbeck aims to 'End It'
By Paul Kuharsky
A movement started by college students has caught Matt Hasselbeck's attention and he’s using the power of his profile to try to draw attention to the issue.
The End It Movement wants people to know there are 27 million people on earth living under different forms of slavery, that human trafficking is not OK and that it can’t continue to happen on our watch.
Hasselbeck spoke about it today on The Herd with Colin Cowherd on ESPN Radio.
He recounted how during his time with the Titans a man was arrested at a motel just across the street from LP Field for trying to pimp out and sell four under-aged girls.
“If you didn’t know, then fine,” he said. “But once you know that this is going on you just say this is absolutely unacceptable.”
Tuesday is the national day on which the organization seeks to shed a light on the issue, and we’re happy to lend a link to the cause.
