Bill Seeks to Enlist New York Hotels to Help Fight Sex Trafficking

Manohla Dargis explores the careers of director Curtis Hanson and writer James Ellroy, based on interviews with both men, to dig deep into the film's obsession with the twinned, equally troubled histories of the Hollywood studio system and the city of Los Angeles.
Though she had previously sponsored legislation in New York to combat sex trafficking, Assemblywoman Amy Paulin said she had not realized how big a role hotels and hotel workers could play in the fight until she met with two activists. “They made me aware,” Ms. Paulin said of Anneke Lucas, a sex-trafficking victim, and the Rev. Lucas started an online petition in January calling for legislation mandating that hotels post clearly visible signs explaining what sex trafficking might look like, and that they train employees how to recognize victims and signs of trafficking. Possible indicators of sex trafficking include guests who book multiple rooms, rent rooms by the hour and pay cash, or men accompanied by young girls who appear downtrodden or do not make eye contact. Girls tattooed with “Daddy’s Girl,” “Daddy’s Little Money Maker” or bar codes are other potential signs, said Carol Smolenski, the executive director of Ecpat-USA , or End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for... Continue reading the main story It is early in the process — the bill is in the Economic Development Committee — but Ms. Paulin is confident it will become law. “We know girls are being trafficked in hotels, and the more awareness we can bring, the greater potential we have of rescuing them and preventing future victims. If enacted, Ms. Paulin said, the legislation will apply to “all lodging facilities,” which the bill defines as hotels, motels, motor courts, apartment hotels, resorts, inns, boardinghouses, rooming houses or lodging houses. “This bill is part of our evolution in fighting sex trafficking,” she said. They keep evolving, and so do we. ”. Ms. Paulin helped pass legislation last year requiring hospital staff to be trained to identify trafficking victims and to notify social services when those victims are under 18. She said she believed hotel... “Pimps are clever and can avoid some hotels,” she said. “But they can’t avoid all hotels. In March 2016, during the 60th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, Ms. Dannhauser served as a delegate for the Church of the Incarnation in Manhattan, where she is the associate rector. During the conference, delegates stayed at the Hampton Inn Grand Central in Manhattan, where Ms. Dannhauser told the hotel’s managers about the Tourism-Child Protection Code of Conduct developed by Ecpat International. “The management team was incredibly receptive,” she said. Inspired by her experience at the United Nations, Ms. Dannhauser, who also leads the Task Force Against Human Trafficking for the Episcopal Diocese of New York, started an advocacy ministry at her church to help combat human trafficking. Paulin’s bill, like Connecticut’s law, would require that hotel staff members receive training from an approved task force, like Ecpat-USA. Michelle Guelbart, the group’s director of private sector engagement, said the Ecpat training, which was established in coordination with the American Hotel and Lodging Association, would provide a solid blueprint for hotels. Another similarity is that the legislation would require that hotels display, “in plain view and in a conspicuous place and manner in the lobby and in the public restrooms,” the telephone number of the National Human Trafficking Hotline , which... “Had I seen such a notice, I would have found a way to call that number,” she said. Lucas and Ms. Dannhauser said they planned to take their fight to other states and to Washington, where they have an ally in Representative Carolyn B. Maloney, Democrat of New York, who helps lead the Congressional Caucus on Human Trafficking. Maloney supports the Ecpat code, which she said established a “common set of guidelines” for combating trafficking. “Ecpat’s code can drastically reduce traffickers’ ability to exploit children through the tourism industry,” she said.
