Mission

Increase awareness and educate the travel industry on human trafficking issues, advocate for legislation change, and provide opportunities for leaders to collaborate.

History

Sabre is a global technology company serving the world’s largest industry — travel and tourism, and as such, was the first to sign the tourism Code of Conduct (The Code).

On September 27, 2012, we launched “Passport to Freedom,” a comprehensive initiative seeking to unite the travel and tourism industry to fight child sex trafficking and human slavery. The event took place at our headquarters in Southlake, TX. U.S. actress Jada Pinkett Smith, and many leaders from the travel and tourism industry, nonprofit and government agencies joined the event.

What is human trafficking?

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. The factors each of these situations has in common are elements of force, fraud or coercion used to control people. Human trafficking is one of the fastest-growing criminal industries in the world, and is estimated to be a $32 billion trade.
