Truckers Against Trafficking

Thursday, June 15, 2017 from 12:30-3:30 p.m.
This program is free and open to the public.
National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
50 East Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH 45202

The Freedom Drivers Project (FDP) is a “first-of-its-kind” mobile exhibit that is a premiere tool in educating members of the trucking industry as well as the general public about the realities of domestic sex trafficking and how the trucking companies are combating this form of slavery. The exhibit trailer is climate controlled and houses a theater station. Authentic artifacts from trafficking cases are displayed to help connect people to the stories of individuals who have been enslaved in the United States. This national tour stop is a collaborative effort between TAT and End Slavery Now at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center to increase awareness of modern day slavery and human trafficking.

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center will be open during the same hours as the FDP exhibit and visitors are encouraged to expand their knowledge on human trafficking by exploring Invisible: Slavery Today, located on the third floor. Invisible offers a comprehensive examination of slavery in the modern world through the life experiences of five individuals who were trapped in one of the five most common forms of exploitation: forced labor, bonded indenture, child slavery, sex trafficking and domestic servitude.
