GREEN BAY, Wis. – (November 2, 2018) – As the eyes and ears of the nation's highways, truck drivers are in an excellent position to assist law enforcement in recovering victims of human trafficking and having traffickers arrested. By calling in tips that are turned over to law enforcement, truckers are helping to close loopholes to traffickers, which leads to lives being saved. That’s precisely why Schneider has been providing Truckers Against Trafficking training to driver associates since 2016.
Schneider is joining forces with the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Truckers Against Trafficking and NWTC to sponsor an event to raise awareness about human trafficking. On Wednesday, November 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Laura Cyrus from Truckers Against Trafficking will explain how to recognize the signs of human trafficking – and how and when to report it. She will be joined by Sgt. Matthew Wilson from the Brown County Sheriff’s Office who will discuss how human trafficking impacts Wisconsin, and what specifically Brown County is doing to combat these crimes and assist survivors. The event will be held at the NWTC Conference Center (Entrance7), 2740 West Mason Street, Green Bay.
Registration is not required and the event is free and open to the general public. While there is no registration fee, donations will be accepted on behalf of the The Rose House. The Rose Home serves human trafficking victims in northeast Wisconsin by providing residential after-care through a holistic strength-based approach.
