Help stop human trafficking

A modern day slave could be sitting next to you on your next flight. People are being bought, sold, and transported into modern-day slavery in broad daylight. Airline Ambassadors International (AAI) works with the airline industry to develop training to identify human trafficking victims. To gain momentum we need an industry leader. This is why we are calling on American Airlines to lead the way by mandating human trafficking awareness training throughout an employee's tenure. Setting this standard would be a landmark move in helping end human trafficking in US air travel.     

If trained correctly and continuously, flight crews have the ability to identifying human trafficking situations for law enforcement. They can be the eyes and ears in the air, scanning hundreds and thousands of passengers. A few airlines have taken advantage of the Department of Homeland Security’s online trafficking training, which is not specific to the airline industry, but none have made it mandatory and recurring. 

Having a mandated, industry specific training that recurs for employees is the best way to stamp out human trafficking in US air travel. This is why American Airlines is critical. They have been a strong ally in working with AAI and we are now asking them to take the next step. We believe American Airlines should incorporate the training as a leader in the airline industry.

The best part is helping human trafficking victims won’t cost much. The Department of Homeland Security and Interpol have offered to provide AAI’s industry specific trainings at no cost to the airlines. All American Airlines has to do is make the commitment. This simple policy change could save thousands of victims.

Please join us in encouraging American Airlines to be an industry leader in ending human trafficking in US air travel. Please sign and share the petition today.
