Consistent with our culture of giving back and demonstrating our commitment to responsible practices, our transportation company recently had its drivers certified as part of the Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) program. During our regular safety meetings, our drivers have been trained in the program requirements and specifics. Our drivers have been educated on the signs of human trafficking and what to do if they suspect it and play a vital role in combatting this crime.
Truckers Against Trafficking
Truckers against Trafficking exists to educate, equip, empower, and mobilize members of the trucking industry to combat domestic sex trafficking as part of their everyday jobs.
Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) helps fight sex trafficking on behalf of the entire transportation industry. TAT works to educate and equip those who travel along truck routes to identify and report suspected sex trafficking through an anonymous national hotline. This simple act makes the roads safer and helps recover innocent victims. When truckers are TAT Trained, they make more reports to the hotline, more victims are recovered, and more pimps prosecuted.
Moving products from Point A to Point B is critical to helping the country thrive. Without American roadways, products do not get into the hands of American businesses and customers. Ground transportation continues to be an efficient and reliable way to transport products and merchandise. Yet, realities exist along those roads that demand attention. Victims of all ages and genders are being forced into prostitution and exploited at locations transportation professionals frequent, including rest areas, hotels/motels, truck, and even places where drivers are delivering their loads.
One in four victims are children. Innocent victims are regularly moved from point-to-point, just like products and merchandise. These victims are relying on those around them, in these critical locations, witnessing these crimes taking place and knowing how to act. With one simple decision, we can help put an end to domestic sex trafficking along North American roadways.
Truckers Against Trafficking is mobilizing an entire network by educating and empowering transportation professionals to recognize and report human trafficking to reduce this exploitation. Members of the trucking industry are in a unique position to actively support this mission and to demonstrate our deep commitment to this country and the safety of its citizens.
This program is effective, and victims of sex trafficking are becoming survivors, and their exploiters are being arrested and prosecuted. Reporting this crime rescues victims and brings their perpetrators to justice. America’s trucking industry is taking a proactive stand against commercial sex slavery and making a substantial impact to end it. Truckers across the country continue to provide tips to the hotline that are helping return freedom to survivors. The cruel reality of human sex trafficking in America is all too real for the young innocent victims and their families.
