EmPOWER the Driving Change event co-hosted by SEG Automotive

April 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

We invite you to join SEG Automotive and Truckers Against Trafficking for the emPOWER the Driving Change community awareness event regarding human trafficking on April 1, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., at the Mexicantown International Welcome Center, 2835 Bagley St, Detroit.

The event will include TAT’s celebrated Freedom Drivers Project (FDP). Also available for viewing will be the 2019 Everyday Heroes Truck, of which SEG Automotive is a proud sponsor. This unique T680 Kenworth tractor, built through the donations of multiple organizations, is currently touring the United States before being auctioned off May 17, 2019 to support TAT’s work. Since January, it has been displayed at the Washington, D.C., Mall, and then in Georgia for the Technology and Maintenance Council annual meeting and Kentucky for the Mid-America Trucking Show, two of trucking’s significant events.

In addition to touring the FDP and checking out the beauty of the Everyday Heroes Truck, event attendees are invited to an 11 a.m. press conference, highlighting the Everyday Heroes Truck and addressing the problem of human trafficking locally and throughout the state. 

Following the press conference, transportation professionals are invited to attend a special Lunch and Learn, beginning at 12:30 p.m., and featuring a TAT presentation.

We hope you will join us for a day of awareness about human trafficking and recognition of the fact that the trucking industry is driving change on this important issue. Come learn how you can be involved in this important work.
