Human traffickers often use local, state, and national infrastructure and transportation systems, including all types of airports, to undertake these activities. Trafficking is often difficult to detect, and responding to potential instances of trafficking in an airport setting remains challenging. TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, October 25, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM Eastern that will present guidance and key information that airport staff and other personnel may use to develop a process to identify and respond to possible human trafficking activity at their facilities. Presenters will explore a comprehensive, yet scalable, process to help airports take action when identifying possible human trafficking activity in a sensitive, victim-centered manor and provide an overview of tools to establish or expand human trafficking prevention programs.

This webinar is based on ACRP Research Report 249: Developing an Airport Program to Address Human Trafficking: A Guide.

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program.

There is no fee to attend this webinar. Registration is required.

A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
