LABTA | Los Angeles Business Travel Association

CSR Committee

Director: Jonathan Cowley

Mission: Our Vision for LABTA Corporate Social Responsibility is to make a positive impact on society, LABTA will educate our members and support charities that address issues that affect our members locally, nationally, and globally. We will continue to support local charities like Toys for Tots and LA Foodbank and bring our members together. Our goals will expand to address National and Global areas that impact us. For example, we will be supporting ECPAT USA and International Justice Mission, these organizations exist to stop human trafficking. In the comining months, we will share more on how we are inadvertently supporting this horrific situation. Other organizations are Clean the World and 2 Hands 2 Cans. Clean the World is already supported by a lot of our hotel partners and focuses globally on taking recycled soaps from hotels and distributing them where needed in areas around the word. 2 Hands 2 Cans is a local organization that creates nutritional and employment opportunities to those with limited resources through the support of our hospitality industry. We look forward for your involvement to support all these great initiatives.
