TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR HOTEL ROOM AND HELP CATCH A SEX TRAFFICKER

You travel to a great hotel (or a not so great one) and you snap a couple pictures to send back home to the folks. Did you know that if you send them to the Exchange Initiative, those pictures could be used as part of a massive database designed to catch sex traffickers?  Turns out that about 40% of trafficking occurs inside hotels and motels, and the photos can be used to locate victims, and it’s all done with an app that came out a few months ago. 

Kimberly Ritter, director for development for Exchange Initiative, is a veteran of the meeting planning industry where she specializes in large event planning and where she became aware of the huge problem with human trafficking. UNICEF has determined that at least 300,000 American kids and 1.2 million kids worldwide are trafficked and prostituted each year.  Ritter is a leading advocate against human trafficking.

Live at 11 AM Pacific time, or go to the website anytime deal about that and the app that’s going to help bring the planning and hotel industries together with advocates, police, and even travelers to fight this huge problem.

Join us as she shares her expertise, her knowledge and the technology being used to counteract human trafficking.
