Missouri Municipal League Joins Missouri Business Council Against Human Trafficking
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Municipal League is proud to join the Missouri Business Council Against Human Trafficking, a business coalition announced today in Jefferson City by Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley.
“Cities are closest to the people,” said MML President and city of Hazelwood Mayor Matt Robinson. “We want to be a part of educating businesses in our communities about how to recognize trafficking and how to respond.”
The Alliance will focus on education and training about human trafficking, and how Missouri workers and businesses can report suspected trafficking activity.
“Missouri’s businesses are leaders in communities across our state, and our new Business Council allows them to lead on one on one of the most important issues we face today,” Hawley said. “I look forward to partnering with Missouri’s business leaders to end the scourge of modern-day slavery.”
