SOAP UP Atlanta Fights Abuse

SOAP Project

The Diocese of Atlanta and Ahavath Achim Synagogue have worked with SOAP UP Atlanta to fight human trafficking during Super Bowl LIII.

The groups added labels to 20,000 soap bars to be distributed to hotels surrounding Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The labels help victims of human trafficking learn of a hotline that lead to their liberation.

Theresa Flores, a survivor of sexual abuse, created the SOAP Project, which works with hotels during high-demand events like the NCAA Final Four and the Indianapolis 500.
