(Miami, FL) – The Miami-Dade Chapter of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association is proud to host State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle as keynote speaker at a meeting on Thursday, March 19, 2015 at Jungle Island in Miami. The event is designed to raise awareness among local hospitality industry leaders about the dangers of human trafficking. In addition to the State Attorney’s remarks, FRLA President and CEO, Carol Dover will be present to give an industry update.

“We have zero tolerance for human trafficking and are proud to help educate the hospitality community about preventative practices. We are glad to have State Attorney Fernandez Rundle share her wealth of knowledge on the subject and we encourage all of our colleagues in the industry to attend this event to assist in combating these horrific crimes,” said Dover.

Since March 12, 1993, Katherine Fernandez Rundle has served Miami-Dade County as State Attorney. Prior to that, she dedicated 15 years as an Assistant State Attorney. When she later served as Chief Assistant, she acted as legal counsel to the Dade County Grand Jury.
