Truckers Against Trafficking

According to the non-profit organization, Futures without Violence, 21 million people are trafficked around the world at any moment in time. Truckers Against Trafficking, otherwise known as TAT, is a non-profit organization that trains truck drivers to recognize and report instances of human trafficking in the United States to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, (NHTH) which was started on December 7th, 2007. From the creation of the hotline until July 31st, 2018, 2,250 calls have been made by truckers to NHTH.

Truckers reported a total of 612 cases of potential human trafficking involving 1,133 potential victims. Before TAT began, the NHTH reported that they had only received three calls in total from truckers. Also, it’s believed that even more victims have been helped by TAT than the statistics show, as these numbers only reflect those calls made by truck drivers directly to the hotline as opposed to calls truckers made to 9-1-1 or the sheriff to report trafficking.

Truck drivers spend long days, weeks, and months out on the road. Therefore, often even more than police officers, it is the truck drivers themselves that have some of the best insight of what actually happens in parking lots, rest stops, motels, businesses and other locations near the road. TAT provides education and anti-trafficking materials to truck drivers to create a team between truckers and law enforcement agencies to help identify and eradicate traffickers. Through their team-effort hundreds of victims have been freed and their perpetrators have been put safely behind bars.
