Mobilizing Hospitality Industry to Fight Human Trafficking
On Friday, June 14, the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking and ECPAT-USA held a training to help mobilize the local hospitality industry to fight trafficking in anticipation of Super Bowl 2014. Michelle Guelbart of ECPAT-USA spoke about the "do's and don'ts" of pressuring the hospitality industry to address human trafficking. Sister Ann Oestreich, IHM, of the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, spoke about the efforts to fight human trafficking when the Super Bowl was held in Indianapolis two years ago. This training was touted as a first step rather than an immediate call to action. Stay tuned for more details about how you can engage in these efforts.
