Human Trafficking: What Hospitality Staff Need To Know


Since May 2017, VCCAHT Members have provided human trafficking awareness training to staff in hotels and motels around the county.

With the signing of Senate Bill 970 on September 27, 2018, hotel and motel employers are now required by January 1, 2020, to provide training and education regarding human trafficking awareness to each employee who is likely to interact or come into contact with victims of human trafficking.

Our training educates staff on the definition, as well as the difference between sex trafficking and labor trafficking, gives guidance on how to recognize warning signs within a hotel setting, and helps staff know how to respond should they suspect human trafficking taking place in their hotel.

If you are interested in having us come out to train your staff, contact us at vccaht@gmail.com. We would be happy to come. 

Human Trafficking: Men & Boys Survive It Too


Male victims of human trafficking are often under-reported and suffer in silence due to shame, stigma and trauma. This summit is designed to help participants identify what constitutes sex and labor trafficking, the signs and prevalence with male survivors, and efforts in place to address this issue here in Ventura County. Two male survivors will share their experiences of being trafficked and their path to achieving safety and autonomy. A panel comprised of local professionals will share their experiences working with identified victims and the local resources available for survivors.

This Summit is for professionals. CEUs are available.
