Kylla Lanier, Deputy Director of Truckers Against Trafficking will join us as our special guest to discuss the continual efforts of the organization in their drive throughout the trucking industry to combat domestic sex trafficking. Discussion will include their first-of-its-kind mobile exhibit, known as The Freedom Drivers Project which provides an insight look into human trafficking as well as offering educational information for trucking professionals and the general public as well. We will also cover the recent story of a young lady kidnapped out of Iowa and was rescued after Conway Truckload driver, Kevin Kimmel "made the call" which also led to the arrest of her traffickers. The action taken by Mr. Kimmel was recognized on April 3, 2015 when Truckers Against Trafficking presented the driver with their 2015 Harriet Tubman Award. Truckers Against Trafficking also received the Suzanne McDaniel Memorial Award for Public Awareness as part of the annual Congressional Victims' Rights Caucus Awards on April 22 at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. Representatives from ATA, TCA, NATSO and OOIDA were in attendance. Mrs. Lanier will share the organization's plan for an upcoming new training DVD, more in-depth educational and training portals and much more offered by the 501(c)3 organization.
