Hotels are hub of human trafficking prevention

When I began this blog over two and a half years ago, I never dreamed how much I would end up posting about efforts to address human trafficking. However it has long been part of the mission and spirituality of Sisters of St. Joseph to notice a need and address it. It is clear that there is a need to stop human trafficking in our world today.

Since the Millennium St. Loius Hotel signed the ECPAT Code of Conduct back in July it seems that there has been a groundswell of articles about other hotels and tourist industries taking similar action. Today someone sent me an article titled: Hotels are hub of human trafficking prevention. This is so hopeful. Perhaps we are getting closer to ending this horrific crime.
