Since 2009, the group Truckers Against Trafficking has been working tirelessly to combat human trafficking in the United States.
On Wednesday, Feb. 22, Truckers Against Trafficking was recognized with a Congressional Recognition award by the office of U.S. Rep. Joe Heck, R-NV, for their efforts to put an end to human trafficking in his home state through a newly formed state coalition of trucking industry officials.
It is very encouraging to see the coalition forming in Nevada to combat human trafficking with the trucking industry at the helm, said Kendis Paris, TAT’s national director. Having U.S. Rep. Heck’s office recognize the effort, not only shows that this is the right thing to do, but that it’s also good for the image of the trucking industry as it takes a proactive response to this issue.
