AAMVA learns how to help survivors!

Whether their ID cards are destroyed by their traffickers, or they're arrested and photographed under a false name, survivors of human trafficking often face a serious, Catch-22 struggle to obtain the basic and necessary identification documents to succeed - such as a driver's license - once they begin trying to put their lives back together. 

Because TAT Field Trainer Beth Jacobs experienced this situation herself as a survivor, and also works to help other survivors overcome the obstacles hindering them in the process of regaining proper ID, Jacobs presented to more than 120 participants at the Annual International Conference (AIC) of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) Aug. 16-18 in Virginia.
