Join ECPATUSA in beautiful Mexico to experience first hand how the travel and tourism industry is combating human trafficking and the exploitation of children. The Code is a responsible tourism initiative with a mission to provide awareness, tools and training to the tourism industry to prevent the sexual exploitation of children. These tourism companies have committed to training their employees to be able to recognize when someone might be a victim, and how to respond. In additional to cultural excursions and beaches, we will meet with NGOs and organizations that provide trainings to prevent human trafficking, advance legislative reform, and promote children’s and women’s rights. See the amazing work being done on the ground to combat this human rights abuse; your journey supports these initiatives and helps ensure that children are protected. Come engage, learn and relax with us in Cancun and on the Riviera Maya.
