TAT believes education and awareness about the realities of human trafficking are key to shifting cultural and societal views that will protect victims and survivors and create opportunities for long-term impact. This is especially important for those in positions with a high likelihood of encountering victims (transportation, justice system, law enforcement/security, education professionals and healthcare workers.

“We commend Allied Universal for their leadership in recognizing the important role that security professionals can play in the fight to end human trafficking due to the many ways that they may come into contact with victims or traffickers in the course of their work,” said Annie Sovcik, program director, Truckers Against Trafficking.  “By partnering with Truckers Against Trafficking to provide this vital coursework to their security professionals, they will play a critical role in combating one of our nation’s greatest human rights violations.”
