In partnership with Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking (BEST), LBHA is proud to offer our members FREE, in-depth, online human trafficking training. SB 970 (Atkins, 2018) requires that hotel and lodging employees who are likely to interact with victims of human trafficking undergo at least 20 minutes of human trafficking awareness training and education.
BEST’s Inhospitable to Human Trafficking Training
BEST offers the most comprehensive human trafficking training available in the country for hospitality employees. BEST’s training is a proven tool that helps victims of human trafficking escape exploitation and helps trained hotels become less hospitable for traffickers. Survey research has shown that before receiving training, only 8% of trainees recognized a trafficking incident within the prior year. After taking BEST’s training, that number jumped to 44% of trainees identifying victims.
