Des Moines, Iowa – On August 13th, Governor Kim Reynolds and Senator Joni Ernst partnered with the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) and the Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) to raise awareness across the state for a unified approach to combat human trafficking. As part of this effort, they will join the hotel industry for a human trafficking prevention training session with hotel employees at the Holiday Inn Mercy Campus in Des Moines.
The training session comes on the heels of the launch of AHLA’s No Room for Trafficking campaign and AAHOA’s Human Trafficking Awareness Training, which builds upon the hotel industry’s long standing commitment to combatting human trafficking by training every hotel worker. Each year, thousands of hotel employees are trained on how to identify and stop trafficking, and this campaign unites the industry around the shared goal to end human trafficking.
