We had the privilege of helping Truckers Against Trafficking this week by moving “The Freedom Drivers Project” this is a mobile exhibit to help educate about human trafficking. What is “Truckers Against trafficking”? Truckers Against Trafficking is a nonprofit organization that trains truck drivers to recognize and report instances of human trafficking. This national organization formed in Oklahoma in 2009 and teaches truck drivers about the results of human trafficking and how they can make an impact. Human trafficking is said to be a $32 billion dollar a year business. They have estimated there to be 27 million slaves in the world today, and this number will continue to grow. The US department of justice estimates hundreds of thousands of children are at risk every year of being trafficked. It is said human trafficking is just below the drug trade as the fastest growing criminal enterprises. 51% of identified victims of trafficking are women, 28% children and 21% men. Human trafficking occurs on a national level, even within your community. Truckers Against Trafficking is a nonprofit organization that trains truck drivers to recognize and report an instance of human trafficking.
