Truckers Making a Difference: Truckers Against Trafficking
Thursday, October 27, 2016

The holidays are a busy season for everyone and truckers are no exception. The months leading up to the busiest season of the year for retailers are definitely hectic for a lot of truckers as well. But we’re never too busy to stop and offer help where we can, so this year we’re highlighting an organization working to create change with the help of the trucking community.

It can be hard to imagine but modern day slavery exists, even in our own country. Human trafficking—when a person is purchased or sold and then forced into labor without compensation—is of course illegal but it has been reported in all 50 states and is estimated to affect hundreds of thousands of people nationwide.

Human traffickers primarily target women and children, luring them from schools, shopping malls, and online sites, among dozens of other locations.

Truckers are in a unique position to help identify and rescue these modern day slaves and have become an invaluable asset in the fight against human trafficking. As the eyes and ears of the nation’s highways, truckers are primed to help close the loopholes traffickers use when they exploit our nation’s transportation systems for their illegal operations.

Truckers Against Trafficking operates several programs that effectively work to end human trafficking with the help of the trucking industry, including the Industry Training Program.

The Industry Training Program is Truckers Against Trafficking’s core program that trains hundreds of thousands of trucking industry members about human trafficking in America and about the very simple steps they can take to combat it. Through this training program thousands of slaves have been identified and rescued and their captors arrested and tried.

We know that every one of us can make a difference in someone else’s life and we salute those that take a stand to protect someone else. For more information about how you can help, visit the Truckers Against Trafficking website.
