Marietta, PA, March 30, 2011 -- Transport For Christ, International, in conjunction with Chapter 61 Ministries, is pleased to announce a first-of-its-kind training DVD on human trafficking and the critical role members of the trucking/travel plaza industry can have in fighting it, is now available, free of charge.
Produced by arts and advocacy non-profit, iEmphathize, the DVD features interviews with the FBI, a prosecuting attorney, a trafficking victim rescued through the call of a trucker, truckers who have seen human trafficking taking place on their routes, actual footage of prostituted women at a travel plaza, and information on concrete ways members of the trucking/travel plaza industry can fight this crime in the course of their daily work.
The DVD can be seen in its entirety at www.truckersagainsttrafficking.com. It can be downloaded from http://vimeo.com/21392891. Or, you can request a DVD by emailing email@example.com. An audio version of the DVD is currently in the works for use as a training module for truckers who are on-the-road and not available for office training programs.
"Because human trafficking becomes a dangerous and relevant safety issue when it intersects with truckers and travel plaza employees, we hope trucking companies, travel plazas, truck-driving schools, state associations and national trucking associations will consider making this DVD a part of their orientation and training for all employees," said Kendis Paris, a national coordinator for Truckers Against Trafficking. "Traffickers are continually moving their victims along our nations' highways and roads. The trucker community and travel plaza employees can become heroes in the fight against human trafficking as they are educated on the issue and then take action to fight it."
Truckers Against Trafficking is an initiative of Chapter 61 Ministries to educate members of the trucking/travel plaza industry about human trafficking and the role they can play in fighting one of the world's most lucrative and destructive crimes. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org Kendis Paris at 720-202-1037.
