ECPAT International is a global network of organizations working together for the elimination of child prostitution, child pornography and the trafficking of children for sexual purposes. The Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct (The Code) a joint venture between the tourism private sector and ECPAT-USA, is the only voluntary set of business principles travel and tour companies can implement to prevent child sex tourism and trafficking of children. By enacting responsible policies, members of The Code play an essential role in protecting children from the sexual exploitation that is particularly prevalent in the travel and hospitality industry. SITE has officially joined the efforts of ECPAT to end child exploitation and human trafficking by signing The Code signifying our commitment to speak out against sexual exploitation of women and children and our intention to leverage our influence in the industry to help victims become survivors. SITE Texas Chapter has committed to donating $2,500 in support of ECPAT’s efforts to eliminate human trafficking.
