UCF partners with United Abolitionists in fight to end human trafficking
The UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management in Orlando is teaming up with United Abolitionist, an agency that fights against slavery and exploitation, to train “future leaders of the hospitality industry to combat human trafficking in hospitality, tourism, events, attractions, hotels and on campus.”
Last year, UCF established the Center for the Study of Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery to address the growing human trafficking problem in Central Florida and around the world.
The Florida Department of Health estimates up to 4 million people are victims of human trafficking worldwide every year.
The Department of Health said children and adults can be victims of human trafficking, and “If you see something, say something.”
