The Celebration without Exploitation campaign is designed to build awareness about the potential spike in sex and labor trafficking that can occur around large sporting events. Beginning with the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and including the Super Bowl as well as the 2012 London Olympics, ICCR members have coordinated investor outreach to the travel and tourism sector as well as key event sponsors to educate them about trafficking risks and to encourage the implementation of safeguards to mitigate against them.
Corporate engagements are supplemented by local grassroots trainings conducted by ICCR members in conjunction with local law enforcement and anti-trafficking NGOs to help educate area hotel managers and to heighten public awareness both during the event and beyond.
