Airbnb Launches Trust and Safety Advisory Group

2 years ago

Airbnb announced the formation of a Trust & Safety Advisory Coalition to counsel the company on human trafficking, child safety, fire safety, privacy and online safety, community safety, women’s safety, extremism and dangerous organizations, and mental health.

The advisory group members include 22 organizations ranging from Tech Against Terrorism and the National Network to End Domestic Violence to the Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking.

“We know we are not the experts on important issues like fire safety, or suicide prevention, or human trafficking – bringing experts to the table makes our community and platform better,” Airbnb stated.

The advisory group’s recommendations will not be binding.
