Human Trafficking

Hospitility Training

The hospitality industry is commonly used in domestic sex trafficking in the United States. Human Traffickers are constantly looking for hotels and motels that do not take a stance against them or are unaware of their actions.

SALVO aims to educate and prepare hotel, motel and casino staff on the signs of human trafficking and how to properly report it.
