There are more people enslaved now than in any time during human history. Roughly 27 million people are victims of human trafficking, an industry that generates an estimated $9.5 billion annually. Skål International Atlanta, in partnership with the Georgia Institute of Technology's Women's Resource Center and One Voice Atlanta student organization, hosted a Human Trafficking Symposium last month. Presenters included representatives from the Atlanta Police Department, Airline Ambassadors International, CNN Atlanta and CNN International's The Freedom Project, ECPAT-USA, Maritz Travel Company, Skål International, Georgia State University School of Law, Georgia Institute of Technology, One Voice Atlanta and the International Human Trafficking Institute at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.
After the conclusion of presentations, hospitality students and professionals were invited to stay for a roundtable luncheon, during which they discussed challenges, solutions and potential next steps. This presentation is a summary of what was discussed.
