Faith investors aim to halt trafficking

May 28, 2012

More than three dozen U.S. and British faith-based investment firms have banded together to get the Summer Olympics' major sponsors and tourist hotels to sign a pledge saying they will work to stop human trafficking around the Olympic Games.

So far, the campaign has had some success.

"The issue has taken hold and the hotels are doing training, and their staff is aware that there are issues that require the attention of management or police agencies and social services," said Julie Tanner, assistant director of socially responsible investing for Christian Brothers Investment Services.
