By providing resources and training opportunities, our members are equipped to train team members to recognize and report instances of trafficking.
WHLA has partnered with the significant expertise at the state Department of Justice and at the Department of Children & Families in an expanded effort to enable Wisconsin's lodging industry to help to prevent Human Sex Trafficking and to protect our employees and guests from the impact of this horrible crime frequently involving children.
