Human trafficking has been a growing problem for many years and is prevalent all across North America and around the World. Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) has saved hundreds of people from traffickers and is a leader in bringing awareness about trafficking to the trucking industry. Their goal is to train as many industries as possible so they can be on the lookout for trafficking victims during their daily jobs. Truckers are leaders in spotting trafficking victims because trafficking often happens on the roadways and places that people stop. You can learn more about TAT and their training at https://truckersagainsttrafficking.org and join the over 1 million people that have been trained so far.
TTSAO is one of the supporters of TAT and sits on their Canadian Board of Directors. They have the TAT training implemented into their curriculum for all TTSAO Schools. At their recent conference Matt …… spoke about the importance of looking out for human trafficking in your neighbourhoods and being aware of the signs that trafficking may be going on in your town.
