Ruan is a proud partner of Truckers Against Trafficking, an organization that educates the trucking industry on the warning signs of human trafficking and provides tools to combat the epidemic. Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. It is estimated that there are more than 40 million modern-day slaves across the world, and human trafficking has been reported in all 50 United States.
Professional truck drivers have a unique opportunity to prevent the spread of human trafficking. Drivers are traveling highways in all parts of the country at all times of the day, and they undoubtedly witness attempts at human trafficking solicitation. Truckers Against Trafficking was created with this in mind. By empowering and educating America’s professional drivers with the tools to recognize and address human trafficking, we can limit the number of men and women being bought and sold into the industry.
Truckers Against Trafficking recently shared this success story. It is our goal at Ruan to facilitate more of these interventions.
