AHLA Foundation Hosts No Room For Trafficking Summit

The AHLA Foundation launched No Room for Trafficking, a national awareness program that unites the hotel industry around a single, comprehensive approach to fight human trafficking in 2019.   
     
In honor of this important program’s three-year anniversary, the AHLA Foundation hosted a No Room for Trafficking Summit on July 11 in Washington, DC to provide a forum where travel industry leaders came together with public and private sector partners. The featured speakers discussed emerging trends and areas of innovation as we drive forward our continued efforts to support survivors and eradicate human trafficking.  

During the Summit, the AHLA Foundation announced a total of $1 million in donations from Hyatt Hotels Foundation, G6 Hospitality, and Extended Stay America to launch the ‘No Room for Trafficking Survivor Fund’ and expand the hotel industry’s ongoing work to support human trafficking prevention and survivors.   
   
With this generous donation, and further support from the industry, the Survivor Fund will equip community-based organizations with the resources they need to engage and support survivors – from direct financial support of their short-term, baseline needs through to career-related support that can empower them and set them up for stability and success.  

No Room For Trafficking is an AHLA Foundation program that builds on the industry’s ongoing commitment and work to end human trafficking by supporting economic stability for survivors while continuing to advance training and education for employees to prevent and respond to human trafficking within the industry.
