Attend a Trimac Academy Live Seminar: Truckers Against Trafficking
Published on July 20, 2021
Human trafficking is one of the greatest human rights violations of our time. Tens of thousands of people every year are illegally trafficked within and into the United States and Canada. Many of these victims are minors, often young females, who are brutally forced to preform commercial acts of sex or labor against their will.
To raise awareness ahead of International Day Against Trafficking in Persons on July 30th, Trimac is hosting a Trimac Academy Live Seminar featuring Truckers Against Trafficking’s Helen Hofer, Director of the Freedom Drivers Project.
Join the webinar to learn more about this important issue and what we can do together.
About the free Webinar
Truckers and those working in the trucking industry are a group who have the greatest opportunity to spot human trafficking as it is happening. Training and working with front-line responders in the fight against human trafficking can and does yield big results when we reach and empower them with the tools to recognize and report human trafficking today.
For example, with one phone call, a trucker who saw some underaged girls working a truck stop not only facilitated the recovery of those girls, but also that of seven other minors. Join us on July 29th at 12pm MDT to learn what trafficking looks like as it intersects with the trucking industry. Learn how you can personally play a role to stop it by empowering the drivers with whom your work connects.
