VERY excited to announce that the Virginia Trucking Association has officially partnered with Truckers Against Trafficking!
Dale Bennett, VTA president and CEO, commented, “Truck drivers and others in the transportation industry serve as the eyes and ears of our nation’s highways. Traffickers often force their victims to work at truck stops, gas stations, rest areas and other establishments near major highways – common locations frequented by our drivers as part of their jobs. What better advocates to take part in the fight against this atrocious criminal activity than trucking and its professional drivers.”
“Virginia’s trucking industry is sending a clear message that we will not stand by and allow human trafficking to take place on our watch and will use all means at our disposal to stop these sickening crimes,” added Bennett. “We are pleased to support the efforts of Delegate Hugo, Senator Obenshain and other members of the General Assembly to strengthen Virginia’s sex trafficking laws so we can end this heinous crime.”
