As travelers, we see a lot of hotel rooms. I heard about this new app on the news that we can use to help save lives from human trafficking, just by taking photos of the hotel rooms we stay in.
It’s really that simple.
Download the TraffickCam app, and whenever you stay in a hotel room, snap 4 photos in the room. Give them the hotel name, and room number too. (You don’t have to give any personal information).
The goal here is to create a database of photos and locations that law enforcement can look through when they have a photo of a trafficking victim but they don’t know where it was taken from. It can help them find where the girls are now, and where they have been. This can help both in rescuing girls and in prosecuting traffickers.
Watch the video below for more information about how law enforcement can use this tool here and how the idea came about, then make sure to download the app before your next trip so we can all help play a part in ending trafficking! Or read more here.
