Prevention and Intervention: The Role of the Bus Industry in Combating Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking is modern day slavery. An estimated 40 million people worldwide are exploited for commercial sex or forced labor. It’s happening every day across the US. Bus companies have an integral role to play in recognizing and reporting this heinous crime. This session will provide information about human trafficking, the BOTL training, and the role you can play in providing an extra set of eyes and ears for law enforcement in recovering victims and arresting traffickers. Please view this short video from BOTL in advance of the session: https://vimeo.com/523944424/98f0b9de8f and visit http://www.busingonthelookout.org for more information.
