Truckers against trafficking: Justice on 18 wheels

Sep 14, 2018 | Trauma: Consequences

What doe truck drivers know that you don’t? Probably a lot of things, but one thing for sure- they know how to spot suspicious trafficking and what to do about it. And it’s all thanks to one woman and her daughters.

Public relations professional Lyn Leeburg learned about the tragedy of human trafficking more than ten years ago, and immediately sat down with her four daughters to figure out how they could help. They came up with the notion that truckers are on the road, are trained to be observant, and could tackle the problem in a big way.

That spark of activism has turned into a comprehensive program that trains CDL drivers, partners with truck manufacturers, training schools, law enforcement…even bus drivers to create a program to fight sex trafficking all across the country.

Join us as Lyn Leeburg talks about how Truckers Against Trafficking started, how it’s grown, and exactly how they help.
