How Hotels Can Join The Fight against Human Trafficking

Lawyers representing the victims of human trafficking are taking aim at hotel chains, which they say ignored the crimes taking place on their property. Late last year, they consolidated at least 21 different lawsuits into one case that make the same claims.

None of those cases are in Arizona, but Chris Glover works here to help hotels and others in the tourism industry prevent human trafficking as its happening. He's the program director of the SAFE Action Project, an Arizona-based collaborative effort to train tourism industry professionals at all levels to identify, report and prevent human trafficking.

Glover joined The Show to talk about the effort.
