Amid National Human Trafficking Awareness Month in the U.S., Truckstop is making a charitable donation to Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT), a non-profit organization that helps to educate, equip, and mobilize the industry to combat human trafficking.

“The fight against human trafficking is an ongoing battle that demands continued support, and there’s an opportunity for everyone to get involved,” said Kendra Tucker, Truckstop’s CEO.

The company also dedicated a recent episode of its ‘Freight Nation: A Trucking Podcast’ to discuss the issue of human trafficking with Laura Cyrus, senior director of industry training and outreach at TAT.
