TIA Partners with Truckers Against Trafficking to Offer Members Access to Human Trafficking Certification Program
TIA has partnered with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) to offer TIA Members complimentary access to the TAT Certification Program via the TIA Learning Management System as part of the growing partnership between the two groups. This training will take TIA Members through a 30-minute online training video that educates users on identifying clues as to when human trafficking may occur, where these crimes usually happen, and how TIA Members are uniquely positioned to help combat this problem in their communities.
TIA Members will become Truckers Against Trafficking Certified and receive a digital certificate showing their achievement upon completing the online training. TIA encourages all TIA Members to participate in this training for themselves and their employees and make it part of their annual training programs similar to other HR or operations training that they offer their employees virtually.
TIA Members can register now for the Truckers Against Trafficking training and certification course.
Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) is a proud supporter of and advocate for efforts to combat human trafficking. We are honored to have partnered with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) in 2021 as a Gold Level Sponsor in support of their mission to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking, bus, and energy industries to combat human trafficking.
As part of this partnership, TIA will work hand-in-hand with TAT to provide information, education, tools, and resources that TIA Members and others in the 3PL and transportation industries can use to help identify and stop this heinous crime. TIA will also host a series of webinars throughout the year to provide the industry with valuable training on how they can play a role.
TIA is also honored to be a member of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking (TLAHT) initiative, which is comprised of transportation and travel industry stakeholders working jointly to maximize their collective impact in combating human trafficking.
To date, TLAHT has engaged with hundreds of organizations from across the transportation industry.
The partnership focuses on five key areas and connects transportation stakeholders to available resources on:
- Industry leadership
- Industry training and education
- Policy development
- Public awareness
- Information sharing and analysis
We'll be announcing additional details on our efforts in support of the TLAHT initiative in the coming months.
