Iowa 80 Truckstop has joined forces with Truckers Against Trafficking to raise awareness about human trafficking among professional drivers and expand its employee training program.


Professional drivers are encouraged to pick up a TAT wallet card at Iowa 80 Truckstop, which lists red flags to look for if trafficking is suspected, specific information to note for law enforcement and the national hotline number to call with the tip.

Iowa 80 Truckstop also now includes general training about human trafficking and TAT resource materials to all company employees.


"We have always trained our employees to be aware of people in our facility who may need assistance," says Delia Moon Meier, Iowa 80 Truckstop senior vice president. "Our employees, customers and business partners can all play a role in helping those who need it and save lives."

TAT is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to educating, equipping, empowering and mobilizing the trucking industry to fight human trafficking. Its resources include a website, a trucking-industry-specific training DVD, webinars, posters and speakers/trainers. More information is available at www.truckersagainsttrafficking.com.
