Today, January 11th, is Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

Join with other across the globe who are speaking out about p**nography's link to human trafficking and exploitation by drawing a red "X" on your hand as part of the #endit movement, and speaking up about the link between s*x trafficking and p**n.

49% of trafficking survivors say p**n was made of them while they were enslaved, and some of that content even ends up on mainstream sites.

Hotels Are Key In The Fight To End Human Trafficking

As the ski season ramps up in Beaver Creek, Colorado, about 120 seasonal employees at the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch gathered inside a series of upscale meeting rooms for onboarding training. The agenda covered hotel rules and expectations, tours of the building, and good customer service.

Oh—and how to spot a slave, too.

Lawsuits are on the rise, but there’s little proof staff training can solve the problem.

S*x trafficking reaches every corner of the state in Colorado

Offenses related to the human trafficking of a minor involve selling and purchasing s*x, transporting, recruiting, and enticing a juvenile to participate in a s*xual scheme that often results in a financial benefit or something of value.

“I think it’s the most sickening thing I have heard in my life,” said Sabrina Jones, who believes her daughter, Lashaya Stine, 16, was s*x trafficked. Stine was a student at George Washington High School when she disappeared from her Aurora home during the summer of 2016.

So far this year, 40 people in Colorado have faced charges related to child s*x trafficking.
