DHS Partners with ALPA and Others to Fight Human Trafficking

On June 12, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Blue Campaign announced a new partnership with the world’s largest airline pilot union, the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), along with the Department of Transportation (DOT) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to fight human trafficking through the Blue Lightning Initiative (BLI). Through an interactive training module, ALPA pilots can access the resources needed to help protect the basic right of freedom and bring those who exploit human lives to justice.

Blue Lightning Initiative

The Blue Lightning Initiative is an element of the DHS Blue Campaign, led by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and DHS Component Agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The BLI trains airline personnel to identify potential traffickers and human trafficking victims, and to report their suspicions to federal law enforcement. To date, more than 100,000 personnel in the aviation industry have been trained through the BLI, and actionable tips continue to be reported to law enforcement.

The BLI is an element of the Blue Campaign, led by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and DHS Component Agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
