MTAC partner Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) is encouraging member companies to undergo training that would help truckers identify human trafficking. Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) is a 501(c)3 that exists to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking and travel plaza industry to combat domestic sex trafficking. TAT recognizes that members of the trucking industry and individual truckers are invaluable in the fight against the heinous crime of human trafficking. As the eyes and ears of our nation’s highways, truckers are in a unique position to make a difference and close loopholes to traffickers who seek to exploit our transportation system for their personal gain. Since TAT’s inception, 425 likely cases of human trafficking, involving 744 victims (249 minors) have been reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) hotline.
Several MTAC member companies have already completed TAT training. Members should be sure to visit the TAT website and consider contacting TAT about training. TAT asks that drivers, companies, or truck driving schools interested in receiving any of their material should contact them via email.
