About the Award
In 2013, Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) created an award to honor members of the trucking industry whose direct actions impacted those victimized by human trafficking. That award has now been expanded to include members of the busing industry as well. The goal is to recognize those whose actions helped to recover the enslaved, improve the lives of victims or prevent human trafficking from taking place.
The winner earns a $2,500 check and will be presented the award at Protective Insurance’s biggest event of the year, the Protective 500.
The award is named in honor of Harriet Tubman, the famed abolitionist credited with using the Underground Railroad to transport slaves to freedom. She was never caught and never lost a passenger.
