The OTC Commitment to Help End Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a violation of basic human rights and should be addressed as such. Through education and support, communities will be more inclined to identify and address trafficking situations. To increase the awareness of the millions of men, women, and children who are trafficked worldwide and help fight this violation, OTC has partnered with Oil and Gas Trafficking Awareness Group (OGTAG) and United Against Human Trafficking (UAHT). For more information about these organizations, please read below. 

OGTAG_LOGOAbout OGTAG
OGTAG was initially started by an oil and gas software company, OVS Group and co-founded by energy executives,  Alex Alvarez and Jennifer Hohman to raise awareness about the issue of human trafficking and inform companies of the role they can play in ending it. Our mission is to bring awareness to the industry through education, engagement, and investment. We provide bi-monthly meetings to introduce energy companies to the issue, providing content and depth of knowledge to participating companies.

We engage our companies to support the efforts of local anti-trafficking nonprofits in communities in which we live and operate in. When OGTAG began in 2017, the group had 2 companies associated, now OGTAG has informed and engaged over 25 service companies who collaborate together to end modern-day slavery in both Texas and abroad. OGTAG strives to educate our industry about the issue of human trafficking within our communities where our employees live and work. 

OTC continues its partnership with United Against Human Trafficking to increase awareness of human trafficking among its attendees and exhibiting companies from the greater Houston area and around the world. This important partnership opens the door for OTC to bring attention to human trafficking and work together to improve our communities.
