About Our Program:

Our speaker will be Renaldo Franklin, Supervisory Special Agent with Homeland Security Investigations. He will speak to us on Combating Human Trafficking in the Hospitality Industry. At-risk populations can face deceitful recruitment practices by those bent on exploiting them for labor. The government is eager to enlist all segments of society in the fight against modern slavery. This is a very timely topic that we all need to become knowledgeable about.
