In partnership with:
The SAFE Action Project is an Arizona-based, collaborative effort to train tourism industry professionals at all levels to identify, report and prevent human trafficking.
Through specialized in-person and web-based training, the SAFE Action Project equips the tourism industry and the travelers with the knowledge and skills about human trafficking in Arizona that is tailored to their specific profession. Everyone has a role to play in combatting this horrific crime.
The SAFE Action Project offers a wide variety of human trafficking training resources to help tourism staff, along with travelers nationwide, recognize warning signs of human trafficking and report suspicious behavior.
The SAFE Action Project is currently working on making our training materials available in an online training format, including online videos, trainings and downloadable PDFs. These trainings will provide warning signs and information to identify possible human trafficking situations.
We extend sincere appreciation to the members of the SAFE Action Project Advisory Board. These individuals provided invaluable insight and perspective from within the Arizona tourism industry and were instrumental in helping to create the SAFE Action Project training materials and curriculum.
