Statement Against Human Trafficking
Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport
Commitment to Address Human Trafficking
Human trafficking is one of the greatest atrocities of the 21st century. With as many as 24.9 million men, women and children sold into sexual exploitation, domestic servitude or other forced labor around the world, human trafficking may seem like a problem beyond our borders. In reality, it’s happening right here in our local communities.
We are committed to fighting the flow of human trafficking that is happening across the transportation industry. In partnership with Airport Initiative, our employees are receiving comprehensive training to effectively identify and report trafficking in our terminals, which would allow potential victims to receive the help they need while still in the airport. Our employees are trained on what human trafficking is, the myths and misconceptions, the physical and mental signs of a victim, those who are most at risk, and airport protocols to report human trafficking when on the job.
We will continue to do our part and bring ongoing awareness and vigilance to addressing human trafficking.
