The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) will hold next year’s Human Trafficking Awareness Initiative (HTAI) on different dates in each of its three member countries. In the U.S., the initiative is scheduled for Jan. 8-12. Canada’s HTAI dates are Feb. 19-23, and in Mexico, HTAI is set for March 11-15.
CVSA’s annual five-day human trafficking awareness, outreach, identification and prevention initiative aims to educate commercial motor vehicle drivers, motor carriers, law enforcement officers, and the public about the crime of human trafficking, the signs to look for, and what to do if you suspect someone is being trafficked.
During the five-day awareness initiative in each country, CVSA jurisdictions will note human trafficking awareness and outreach efforts and projects and submit that data to the alliance. The results will be released in the summer of 2024.
In preparation for the 2024 Human Trafficking Awareness Initiative, CVSA is offering human trafficking awareness resources to its membership and working with Truckers Against Trafficking to distribute wallet cards, posters, and window decals. Fill out our online form to order complimentary outreach materials.
To find out what your jurisdiction is doing to increase human trafficking awareness, contact the agency/department responsible for overseeing commercial motor vehicle safety within your state, province, or territory.
The Human Trafficking Awareness Initiative is part of CVSA’s Human Trafficking Prevention Program. The program seeks to reduce human trafficking throughout North America through coordinated enforcement and investigative and educational awareness measures within the commercial motor vehicle industry.
