The hotel industry has also partnered with the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence (NAESV) for several years to raise awareness of sexual violence provide hotel operators and managers with training, tools and resources to identify and report sexual harassment and assault.

Continuous Security Enhancements

The hotel industry works closely with safety experts, law enforcement and others to continuously review and update protocols, procedures and technologies that can help keep both employees and guests safe.

Human Trafficking Awareness

AHLA partners with national organizations, including End Child Prostitution and Trafficking (ECPAT-USA) and Polaris, to raise awareness about human trafficking, and develop trainings and tools tailored specifically to hotel industry employees. AHLA also partners with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security through the Blue Campaign, which brings together law enforcement, government and private organizations to combat human trafficking.
