Foley Foundation Traveler Safety Guide cover

Innocent Americans are increasingly at risk of kidnapping while abroad. Here’s how you can mitigate the risk. The James W. Foley Legacy Foundation developed the JWFLF Traveler Safety Guide to help prepare Americans when traveling internationally or domestically.

This traveler safety guide, authored by Foley Foundation board member Doug Patteson with contributions from former Foley Foundation fellow Sam Goodwin and Tom Durkin, director of the Foundation’s Education Program, is designed to help travelers understand the safety risks they may confront while traveling.

Please know that these are tips, not mandates. Have a great trip, whether for work or a new experience. But be smart. Be cautious without being paranoid. See our full guide for helpful tips.
