Human Trafficking Statement
PRA Events, Inc. (PRA) condemns all forms of human trafficking, modern slavery and the sexual exploitation of children, women, and men. PRA is committed to the principle that everyone has the right to grow up and live without fear of exploitation or harm.
PRA will strictly comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding the prevention of all forms of human trafficking, including the commercial sexual exploitation of children and modern slavery. Furthermore, PRA will cooperate with law enforcement authorities to address any instances of exploitation which PRA or its employees have become aware.
PRA is committed to doing its part in recognizing and stopping human trafficking that may be taking place at programs and events it produces for clients. Furthermore, PRA does not recruit child labor, and supports the elimination of exploitative child labor as well as modern slavery. In order to contribute to this cause, PRA has joined ECPAT USA and is committed to The Code. Using the guidelines and principles laid out from these two internationally recognized organizations, PRA is developing standards for operating our client events as well as an internal training policy. With team members across the US, PRA plans to train employees on the key markers to look for while onsite at client programs and events that take place in airports, hotels, venues and restaurants.
In addition, all PRA employees must follow the below:
- Not use or allow the use of any of PRA facility, resource or equipment (including PRA’s computers and networks) for the viewing, storage, distribution, promotion or other use of materials in which children are depicted as engaging in any sexual act or are otherwise made an object for prurient interests;
- Not enter into, on behalf of PRA, or otherwise, any business relationship or any other arrangement with any organization which the employee has reason to believe participates in any way in human trafficking;
- Not use or allow the use of images or concepts that sexually exploit children. All employees must be vigilant and immediately report all situations that come to their attention where exploitation of children and/or modern slavery is suspected or appears to be intended. Reporting hierarchy is defined below.
- Under no circumstances may PRA funds, property (including electronic devices and PRA supported technology) or personnel be used to further or support activities related to human trafficking.
