Countless arrests for cases of human trafficking occur at hotels. They are the ideal locations for pimps or traffickers to bring victims because there is anonymity, they can stay for short periods of time, and buyers of sex feel comfortable using hotels. As long as hotels are seen as an anonymous and low-risk venue for selling sex, this will continue to be where victims are exploited.
Our partner, ECPAT-USA, has created a Public Service Announcement on how sex trafficking victims are exploited in hotels. Watch now.
ECPAT-USA: “When asked, service providers and law enforcement agencies report that almost every single pimped victim they came in contact with has been exploited at one point in hotels.”
