New PSA Asks “Does Your Hotel Know” About Child Sexual Exploitation

ECPAT-USA is launching Does Your Hotel Know?, a new campaign and public service announcement about sex trafficking victims who are exploited in hotels and how the industry and travelers can respond.

The goal is to encourage hotels and travelers alike to educate themselves about the signs of sex trafficking. With proper training, a front desk clerk or a housekeeper can notice that something is not right and respond accordingly. Travelers are asked to know the signs and report trafficking.

ECPAT-USA’s new campaign promotes corporate social responsibility and encourages hotel brands to take a stand against sexual exploitation and join The Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct (The Code), the only voluntary set of business principles companies can implement to prevent sex tourism and the sex trafficking of children. Major companies currently implementing the Code include Hilton Worldwide, Wyndham, Carlson Companies, Orbitz, and Delta Airlines.
