Human trafficking is growing to widespread proportions, and we as hoteliers have an obligation to confront it and respond however we can. Evil people prey upon women and children, trapping them in an endless cycle of abuse. Hotel owners are in every city across the country; AAHOA’s network of hotel owners and their staff are uniquely situated to make a positive impact.

AAHOA is committed to promoting awareness of this grave violation of human rights by educating hoteliers on how to spot and report any suspicious activity, and has partnered with the Department of Homeland Security and Businesses Ending Slavery & Trafficking (BEST) to provide resources to hoteliers. AAHOA is also committed to working with victims’ rights groups and lawmakers on the state and federal level to support laws giving hoteliers and prosecutors alike more tools to stop the victimization of men, women, and children in human trafficking.

It is more important now than ever to Learn. Share. Act.
