Missouri is about a year into a partnership with an organization that aims to increase awareness of human trafficking.
Truckers Against Trafficking partners with state transportation departments, Highway Patrol units, truck driving companies, truck stops and others to distribute educational materials to truck drivers. The group’s materials focus is on domestic sex trafficking.
Scott Marion, Missouri Department of Transportation motor carrier services director, contacted Truckers Against Trafficking for materials to distribute in the state about a year and a half ago. He came across the organization’s efforts on several occasions and wanted to get Missouri further involved.
