It’s called TAT and, no, it is not an association of tattoo enthusiasts. TAT stands for Truckers Against Trafficking, an association of more than 700,000 truckers trained to spot the signs of human trafficking, then call the national human trafficking hotline.
“We know that traffickers are going to exploit their victims anywhere they can to make money—that includes places like truck stops, hotels, motels, rest areas –even places of business,” said TAT’s Laura Cyrus. “There’s estimated to be 40 million victims across the world; it’s a $150 billion a year criminal enterprise. It’s happening in every state in the United States.”
TAT’s mission as a non-profit organization is “to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking and busing industries to combat human trafficking.”
