Fla. AG Pam Bondi launches partnership to stop human trafficking

In an effort to combat human trafficking, Fla. Attorney General Pam Bondi launched a partnership Tuesday with various industries throughout Florida, which includes an online toolkit developed to help business associations

Members of the associations can create their own policies and internal training sessions to end human trafficking, a $32 billion industry that exploits children, women and men.

Florida State University’s Center for the Advancement of Human Rights, Terry Coonan, will be working with Bondi’s office to develop industry-specific sessions to help businesses create their own anti-human trafficking plans.

In 2011, the National Human Trafficking Resource Center ranked Florida third in the number of calls received by the national hotline, according to a release by Bondi’s office.

“Florida’s businesses are uniquely positioned to help end human trafficking in our state,” Bondi said in the release. “By partnering with businesses spanning a wide array of industries, we can enlist their help to be Florida’s eyes and ears to reporter and end suspected trafficking.”

Dedicated to making Florida a zero-tolerance state for human trafficking, the following associations have joined Attorney General Bondi in this initiative:

  • Associated Industries of Florida
  • Florida Chamber Foundation
  • Florida Petroleum Council
  • Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association
  • Florida Retail Federation
  • Florida Trucking Association
