Where do you go to find your current compliance ratings, what do they mean and who cares about them?

Lunch: Prevention and Intervention: Combating Human Trafficking Through the Trucking, Bus and Energy Industries; Presented by Kylla Lanier, Truckers Against Trafficking

Sex trafficking has been reported in all 50 states. Through force, fraud and coercion, traffickers exploit those most vulnerable for the purposes of commercial sex, often moving their victims from location to location in order to keep them from forming relationships or getting help. Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) recognized early on that we couldn’t shut down every bit of human trafficking taking place in our country, but what if we could get sector specific? As the eyes and ears of our nations highways, professional truck drivers are already trained to be vigilant. What if they understood the backstories that are behind the smiles and knocks on the doors, and knew how, and when to report it?
