Washington -

U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow issued the following statement:


“It’s understandable that America is hurting right now. Our society is confronting the pain of injustice while addressing multiple other simultaneous challenges. How we collectively address these factors will shape the future of our country and how the world perceives us as a destination committed to getting it right. While the moment will come to encourage business and leisure travel once again, we urge our political leaders to focus completely on the safety and wellbeing of all citizens and communities at this time.”



U.S. Travel Association is the national, non-profit organization representing the $1.3 trillion travel industry, an essential contributor to our nation's economy and success. U.S. Travel produces programs and insights and advocates for policies to increase travel to and within the United States. Visit ustravel.org for more information.
