MGM Resorts International, the Las Vegas-based casino/resort operator, has awarded $250,000 to the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.

The nonpartisan think tank, founded in 2012, and inspired by the public service of Senator John McCain and his family, will use the gift to fund several initiatives to aid the vulnerable population of homeless youth and provide prevention measures.

“We are so grateful for the support of MGM Resorts International. This contribution allows us to deepen our work to protect our communities’ most at-risk and vulnerable citizens from exploitation and abuse,” said Cindy H. McCain, who serves on McCain Institute’s Human Trafficking Advisory Council. “Partnerships like these take us one step closer to the day when no man, woman or child finds themselves ensnared in modern day slavery,” added McCain.
