Human trafficking is something we don’t always think about in the context of transportation issues; however, human trafficking is one of the greatest atrocities of the 21st century. As many as 24.9 million men, women and children are sold into prostitution, domestic servitude or other forced labor around the globe.
As commercial motor vehicle drivers and inspectors, our members are on our roadways every day and often times, the individuals committing the crime of human trafficking are using our roadways to do so. That’s why awareness is critical. Knowing what to look for and how to respond is essential.
CVSA will be starting a new three-day human trafficking awareness initiative in 2022:
- In the U.S., the initiative is scheduled for Jan. 11-13.
- In Canada, it will take place Feb. 22-24.
- In Mexico, it’s set for March 15-17.
Working together, we can put an end to human trafficking.
