Ending Human Trafficking Resources and Training
The Georgia Hotel & Lodging Association (GHLA) is working with members, state and federal agencies and other interested parties, to help the hotel and lodging industry better combat the abhorrent practice of human trafficking. Human trafficking - modern day slavery - is not just a problem in developing nations; estimates show that thousands of men, women, and children are trafficked in the United States each year primarily for sexual or labor exploitation. Trafficking networks often rely on legitimate businesses, like hotels, to sustain their operations and infrastructure.
