Zonta Teaming Up With Truckers Against Trafficking
Zonta of Cheyenne teamed up with Truckers Against Trafficking Wednesday and Thursday at Frontier Park to teach people how they can save lives by being able to recognize and report human trafficking.
"Would it be worth it if you saved one life? Would it be worth it if one person didn't have to endure a life of slavery anymore because of one 15 minute call?" Helen Van Dam the Freedom Drivers Project Director for Truckers Against Trafficking said. "This isn't as far from us as we think it is. This could be your sister, daughter, relative, it could be your brother. You never know who it could be happening to. And its happening to someone's family member."
With more than 7 million in the trucking business across the country, the Freedom Drivers Project travels all year to educate everyone on the signs of human trafficking.
Inside their truck is an exhibit to tell the stories of sex trafficking survivors, with victims articles of clothing and other personal belongings, to show just how relatable victims are.
If you, or someone you know, may be effected by this, call the Truckers Against Trafficking hotline at 1-888-3737-888.
