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 and general public about the realities of domestic sex trafficking and how the trucking industry is combating it. From its outside wrap, to the climate controlled interior, which includes a theatre station, actual artifacts from trafficking cases that connect people to the back stories of so many who end up enslaved in our country, to portraits of the real Truckers Against Trafficking and how each is working to end human trafficking, this trailer provides many with their first glimpse into human trafficking, as well as simple action steps anyone can take immediately walking out of it.
See the impact the Freedom Drivers Project is having across the country in the 2020 Freedom Drivers Project Recap.
“Bravo to all who had a hand in bringing this critical message to the public’s attention! It has a wow factor that definitely makes one think. America’s trucking industry is taking a proactive stand against commercial sex slavery and making a substantial impact to end it. I was impressed by the stark messages from the exhibits. They touched my soul. All who read the true stories can imagine what it would be like to be treated like a slave. I am also convinced people will be inspired to do whatever they can to end modern day slavery.” –Teresa Fedor, Ohio State Representative
“As the National Human Trafficking Resource Center works to reach even more victims of sex and labor trafficking in all 50 states, it’s critical that the hotline number is prominently displayed so victims know we are here to help. Truckers Against Trafficking’s impact in raising awareness about modern slavery and the NHTRC hotline is both remarkable and indispensable. Truckers across the country continue to provide invaluable tips to the hotline that are helping us return freedom to survivors. The Freedom Drivers Project is an exciting initiative which has the potential to elevate this important issue and equip communities across the country with the knowledge and tools to make a difference.” –Nicole Moler, Director of the National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC)
“Truckers Against Trafficking is mobilizing an entire network by educating and empowering transportation professionals to recognize and report human trafficking. Members of the trucking industry are in a unique position to actively support this mission and to demonstrate our deep commitment to this country and the safety of its citizens. Great Dane is proud to support this admirable cause, including our support of the TAT’s Freedom Drivers Project. This traveling exhibit is a great way to spread awareness and inform more people of TAT’s mission and the realities of domestic sex trafficking. We encourage our friends and partners to join us in supporting TAT so together we can combat this heinous crime.” –Chris Hammond, Executive Vice President of Sales at Great Dane
“The cruel reality of human sex trafficking in America is all too real for the young innocent victims and their families. But for the rest of us, it’s just under the surface, just under the radar. We don’t see the reality and therefore don’t understand that we can do something to stop it. The Freedom Drivers Project will break through the surface and display the truth behind the forced smile, the truth behind the provocative dress. When the FDP is at a location near you, stop and take a few moments to enter the world sex trafficking victims live every day and every night. Look at the artifacts, videos and pictures and ask yourself the questions you never knew to ask. Learn what you can do and then do it.” –Dave Nemo, Sirius XM Radio Personality and Host of The Dave Nemo Show
“The display is powerful. It made me think, and then it made me angry. I left with a stronger resolve to do my part to end human trafficking.” –State Rep. Cathrynn Brown, New Mexico
“The thought of someone having to wear a dog tag (with bed number) around their neck (and being identified for purchase by it) is horrible. The FDP is an excellent educational tool, I like how it encompasses both the reality of human trafficking as well as what you can do to stop it.” –Lauren Kane, Director of Communications, Georgia Department of Law, Attorney General’s Office.
