In honor of World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, ECPAT-USA, the leading policy organization seeking to end the commercial sexual exploitation of children through awareness, advocacy, policy, and legislation is excited to announce the release of new prevention and awareness materials created in collaboration with Marriott International, Polaris Project, and A21 Campaign. The new posters, available publicly to any company, group, or individual, can be downloaded for free here.
A number of states have passed laws mandating the posting of human trafficking related signage in hotels and other establishments. Our recent report, Unpacking Human Trafficking, surveyed state law requirements and can help you determine what regulations are in your state. Hotels in states that are not legally mandated to post signage are encouraged to do so voluntarily. ECPAT-USA promotes awareness messaging in businesses trying to take proactive steps to protect children from sexual exploitation.
These new materials are available in a variety of colors and designs and include indicators of both sex and labor trafficking, as well as information about the National Human Trafficking Hotline. Downloading and displaying these resources is an easy way to get involved in the movement and actively participate in World Day Against Trafficking in Persons.
These posters are just the latest additions to our extensive collection of publicly available anti-trafficking materials. For additional hotel-specific tools, click here.
