Human Trafficking in the Hospitality Industry
January 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
January 13, 2021
3:00PM- 4:00 PM Eastern | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM Central
This free webinar is one in a series that BBCAHT, STAC, and others in the Big Bend of Florida are organizing during this time of social distancing and in observation of January, National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. We are happy to extend this invitation to friends and colleagues throughout the Big Bend and beyond – please join us!
The hospitality industry is one of the places where traffickers commonly exploit victims for both labor and sex. Trafficking victims can be hidden from plain sight and not recognized as victims unless hotel guests and staff learn the signs of a potential trafficking situation. Staff in the hospitality industry must be able to recognize the signs and be prepared to act if they observe a potential human trafficking situation in their establishment. After completing this training, participants will understand the definitions of both labor and sex trafficking and relevant state and federal laws, will be able to recognize the signs, and will know how to report human trafficking.
Presenter: Marina Anderson, Florida Department of Children and Families Regional Human Trafficking Coordinator for Northeast and Northwest Regions.
Attendance will be limited to the first 1,000 people who join this event. Please join early.
Sponsors: STAC in affiliation with Big Bend Coalition Against Human Trafficking and the International Rescue Committee.
