Truckers Against Trafficking

Truckers Against Trafficking is a North American organization that exists to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking industry to combat domestic sex trafficking. Human trafficking exists in every state and province in North America.

What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Human traffickers use various forms of force, fraud, and coercion to control and exploit victims. Human trafficking victims can be any age, race, gender identity, sex, ethnicity, nationality, immigration status, or socioeconomic class. In many cases, victims do not come forward to seek help because they are vulnerable, potential language barriers may exist, they have a fear of law enforcement, or they do not identify as a victim.

Trimac Volunteer Testimonial

Trimac HR Business Partner, Ashley Steel, who works with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) says, “Awareness is key when it comes to protecting our youth.

“Sometimes you get a feeling something isn’t right, but you aren’t sure what is going on or who to report it to. That is why awareness is so important. If you have the knowledge, you don’t have to get directly involved in a dangerous situation that may be occurring, but you are empowered to make a call to someone who can help,” says Ashely.

Ashley, who actively volunteers with TAT, recalled a success story where they were able to rescue a child from being trafficked. As part of TAT’s awareness campaign, Ashley and her team distributed Missing Children posters to hotel managers. One of the managers was able to recognize the child who came in and reported it to authorities.

“By being aware of what was going on and making a call, they made a difference,” said Ashley.
