Hospitality venues are frequently used for sex trafficking, where vulnerable victims, many of whom children, are forced or coerced by the traffickers to service hotel visitors.Victims of labor trafficking can also be trapped in slavery in hotels and motels working long hours against their will for little or no pay.
Major events attract traffickers and often increase the use of hospitality venues for trafficking activities. With Super Bowl quickly approaching, civic leadership, community based organizations and faith communities all around the Bay Area are mobilizing to create an environment in which traffickers will find it difficult to engage in their criminal activities.
