CorpTrav is proud to join ECPAT-USA in the fight for appropriate laws to end and prevent human trafficking.
Originally passed in 2000, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act provided necessary aid to human trafficking victims across the globe. Its proposed reauthorization—the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act of 2017 and complimentary Senate bills—focuses on prevention, strengthens victim restitution, and adds critical new provisions concerning endangered children.
This federal policy is vital in the positioning of law enforcement’s ability to combat child trafficking around the globe. The law provides essential support for training and education efforts so that employees of the travel and hospitality industry can better recognize human trafficking.
