Taking a Stance Against Human Trafficking

Perpetrators of human trafficking maintain highly organized networks across the globe and do their best to avoid detection, especially when on the move. We, in the commercial aviation industry, have an opportunity and responsibility to be well-informed and well-trained to partner with law enforcement and other agencies to recognize perpetrators and victims. Tagg Petersen, Inflight Training at Southwest Airlines, will share how Southwest is partnering with industry leaders and agencies to address this worldwide epidemic through adjustments in standards, operating procedures, training, and taking more of a public stance against human trafficking.
