Truckers Against Trafficking

Truckers Against Trafficking

Truck drivers across the country have been called on by Chapter 61 ministries to be the eyes and ears for the human trafficking crisis in America.  The partnership between the Transport for Christ and Chapter 61 organizations, the Truckers Against Trafficking, along with  many others, have led to a much greater awareness of this problem, not only in the United States but abroad.  Recent headline news is focusing on this $32 billion a year business, which destroys countless lives and enslaves its victims . . . the majority of whom are women and children:

These are just a few of the most recent cases involving human trafficking.  Most Americans are aware of the problem in Asia and Africa, but are oblivious to that fact that it is big business here in the United States.   Chapter 61 ministries will be presenting another set of online informational webinars in September, 2010.

All webinars will begin at 9 p.m. EDT.  Because members of the trucking and travel plaza industry represent the eyes and ears of America on those highways, they can play a critical part in fighting this crime and those who perpetrate it. They simply need to know what to look for, what questions to ask and what steps to take.
