Hotels should be held accountable for turning a blind eye to human trafficking
Sex trafficking is modern-day slavery involving the use of the intimidation or coercion to force a person to preform sexual acts for money against their will.
Major Hotel Brands Have Knowingly Profited from Sex Trafficking
According to the Department of Homeland Security, there are several tell-tale signs that willfully go ignored and unreported within the hotel industry.
These important indicators are not helpful if hotels choose to ignore what is happening on their premises. Hotels that fail to implement policies for procedures to report sex trafficking choose to put their profits over people. Traffickers understand that hotels value profits above all else and use this to their advantage, using hotel premises as a haven to conduct their illegal activity while remaining largely anonymous.
The National Human Trafficking hotline reports that hotel and motels account for almost 74% of potential sex trafficking instances in the United States.
Major Hotel Chains Sued for profiting from Sex Traffcking
A recent case from Texas alleges that Backpage.com and several national hotel and truck stop companies benefited from sexual exploitation of the survivor.

Since then, many victims have come forward to tell their story, but many more may need our help and may qualify for compensation.
Survivors Take Action
Trafficking survivors across the United States have filed lawsuits against dozens of well-known hotel chains that have profited from sex trafficking and ignored obvious signs of exploitation taking place on their properties. Hilton, Red Roof Inn, Marriott Hotels, and Wyndham Hotels were among the hotel chains accused. Many of these victims were minors when the trafficking occurred.
