Human Trafficking Awareness Training
were in Washington DC this past week to bring the Airline Ambassadors International (AAI) human trafficking awareness training to the Ronald Regan National Airport. I have had the honor to serve on the board of directors of the Airline Ambassadors International and found myself gravitating to this very deserving cause of bringing awareness to this horrific crime of human trafficking. The AAI has aligned with DHS, ICE and other agencies who are fighting human trafficking. The awareness training program is first of its kind to be offered to airports, hotels and other private and public organizations.

Another organization who has stepped up to the plate to commit its resources to awareness education and training of human trafficking is long time San Francisco institution, International Tour Management Institute. . AAI and International Tour Management Institute will now be working together to offer a curriculum that is rich in content and easy to navigate.

- Latest news from Cruise Line Safety Act -
implemented after bill was signed two years by President Obama?

Do you remember the safety and security act that we all worked so hard to have passed through the legislature? It passed in Senate and House in 2009,

President Obama signed the bill and it has yet to be implemented. Why? Is there a cover up? We are happy to support the NBC investigative unit out of San Jose.
