MGM RESORTS MAKES GENEROUS CONTRIBUTION TO FIGHT HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Founded in 2012 and inspired by the public service of Senator John McCain and his family, the nonpartisan think tank will use the gift to fund several initiatives designed to aid the vulnerable population of homeless youth and provide prevention measures. 


“We are so grateful for the support of MGM Resorts International,” said Cindy H. McCain, who serves on McCain Institute’s Human Trafficking Advisory Council. “This contribution allows us to deepen our work to protect our communities’ most at-risk and vulnerable citizens from exploitation and abuse.”


She added, “Partnerships like these take us one step closer to the day when no man, woman or child finds themselves ensnared in modern day slavery.”


Among the initiatives that will be funded include: 

  • A certification program for service providers who work with runaway and homeless youth, a population that is vulnerable to exploitation.
  • Enhanced school-based prevention efforts, including teaching children how to avoid victimization while training educators to identify child trafficking victims. 
  • New multi-disciplinary approaches to eliminate forced labor from global supply chains.
