Groups Come Together to Combat Human Trafficking in Colorado

Nov 12, 2012

COMMERCE CITY, Colo.The Colorado Motor Carriers Association, Colorado Truckstop Conference, and local elected and law enforcement officials launched an educational and awareness campaign today focused on combatting the human trafficking of underage children who are being forced to engage in prostitution.   The kick off for the program was held at Travel Centers of America in Commerce City.

The campaign was launched in conjunction with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT),  a national non-profit organization, based in Colorado, who is working with the trucking industry to help truckdrivers and truckstop employees recognize children and others who may be being trafficked as part of prostitution rings and report it to law enforcement. 

The campaign will use materials developed by TAT (www.truckersagainsttrafficking.org) including wallet cards, DVDs, posters, and other materials to help drivers and truckstop employees to recognize and act when they suspect human trafficking may be occurring.
