Human Trafficking Awareness Training
Human trafficking is growing to widespread proportions, and we as hoteliers have an obligation to confront it and respond however we can.
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. 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.
AAHOA has partnered with Businesses Ending Slavery & Trafficking (BEST) to offer free Human Trafficking Awareness Training at the 2018 AAHOA Annual Convention & Trade Show. This training includes a review of the risks to you and your hotel, the people involved in trafficking, the process for reporting to law enforcement, and how you and your staff can prevent trafficking in your hotel. Upon completion of the training, you will earn a certificate.
In addition to many local jurisdictions which may require certain Human Trafficking Awareness Training, did you know that at least 38 states and the District of Columbia have laws which require some public agencies and/or private businesses to train their staff to recognize, report, and respond to human trafficking crimes and victims? CLICK HERE to see if you are in one of the 38 states.
There is no additional fee for this training.
