I’m always cautious when I’m in a new place and alone. To others, I may be paranoid, but after learning about sexual harassment in the workplace and cyber safety, I think it’s necessary to be protective of my personal safety.
One of the reasons I joined Two Wings was because I wanted to be a part of a cause that serves young women who had been mistreated by men. Mistakenly, I assumed that young women were the only ones who suffered the plight of domestic sex trafficking. I soon learned that there are boys and young men who suffer in silence.
According to the National Human Trafficking Center, in 2016, they recorded 5,551 cases of sex trafficking in the United States. Sex trafficking venues vary but there is one industry that may be enabling sex trafficking, and that is adult entertainment.
Domestic sex trafficking is happening right in front of our eyes. It is for this reason that Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) is taking a proactive stance against the sex trade. Learn about the signs of domestic sex trafficking and just like our truck drivers you too can help save lives!
