Love’s Travel Stops announced a partnership with Truckers Against Trafficking, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness among professional truck drivers and travel stop employees to combat human trafficking in our country. Love’s also donated $10,000 to help TAT with the costs of producing materials to support its mission.

As part of the partnership, Love’s has incorporated a video produced by Truckers Against Trafficking into its training program for 10,000 employees working at more than 300 travel stops nationwide. The video helps employees identify trafficking situations, and it details the steps to alert proper authorities.

Love’s also worked with TAT to print and distribute posters with the hotline help number to be displayed in all of its locations.

Pocket Card Networks, one of Love’s vendors, is also showing support by donating advertising space and distribution for the TAT wallet-sized information cards on its card racks inside Love’s Travel Stops geared to professional truck drivers.

Truckers Against Trafficking continually seeks additional ways for the trucking industry to get involved in the fight against human trafficking. The organization also builds coalitions between state and local law enforcement, anti-trafficking organizations and general managers of travel stops to create a tight bond between people who have the skills to identify and assist in stopping human trafficking along our nation’s interstate highways.

    I hope while they are supporting this good cause they are also training their armed security not to shoot truck drivers because they don't like the way they walk.
