COAST (Club Operators Against Sex Trafficking is an ACE National program designed to educate the industry about human trafficking. We have trained over 1,600 people since our inception.
ACE National paired with local and federal law enforcement—to police our clubs and uphold personal security and human rights—as we believe these are pillars of liberty in the U.S. that strengthen the foundation of freedom. COAST ensures that men and women make a choice to work in our industry and do so without force, fraud or coercion.
• COAST is committed to combating this crime and we work closely with local and federal law enforcement, nongovernmental organizations and our neighbors.
• We coordinate seminars in cities across the U.S. to educate industry professionals about human trafficking so they can go out into the world as “eyes and ears” against this crime.
• COAST was launched 2009. Since then, training sessions have been held with great success in St. Louis, Tampa, Dallas, Miami, San Francisco and Charlotte.
COAST training results in real improvement for the fight against human trafficking by educating those who may encounter a victim and arming them with the actions steps needed to recognize, report and rescue a victim.
