50 E. Freedom Way
The Freedom Drivers Project (FDP), held by Truckers Against Trafficking, will be making a stop at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center July 4th weekend. The FDP truck will be parked outside the Center and will be available to the public at no cost. The hours of operation will be 11:00am till 5:00pm both days.
The FDP is a first-of-its-kind mobile exhibit that is an ideal tool for educating members of the trucking industry, as well as the general public, about the realities of domestic sex trafficking and how the trucking industry is working to prevent it. The mobile exhibit includes a theater station and artifacts from recent trafficking cases, connecting the public to stories of modern day slavery in the United States. Portraits of drivers the drivers will be displayed along with stories on how each driver is working to end 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.
