The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association is partnering with Truckers Against Trafficking in TAT’s efforts to educate, equip and mobilize members of the trucking and travel plaza industry to combat domestic sex trafficking.
The Department of Justice estimates that 100,000 to 300,000 of America’s youth are at risk of becoming victims of the sex trade industry each year.
“Their efforts are important in so many ways, and we have been glad to help spread their messages to our members,” said OOIDA President Jim Johnston. “We are proud to strike an official partnership with them and continue that outreach through social media, a direct link from our website homepage, and other channels.”
OOIDA, which has more than 150,000 members nationwide, hands out TAT wallet cards from its headquarters and keeps them on hand on the association’s tour truck.
