FMCSA Launches “Your Roads, Their Freedom” Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign
Cobb County is proud to work alongside the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and fellow transportation and travel industry leaders to combat human trafficking.
As Cobb County knows all too well, America’s transportation systems are often exploited by human traffickers. To combat this heinous crime, FMCSA launched the “Your Roads, Their Freedom” human trafficking awareness campaign. The campaign is designed to empower the nation’s 8.7 million commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to confidently identify and report suspected cases of human trafficking — ultimately saving lives and making America’s roadways safer for all.
As an agency within the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) whose mission is to ensure road safety, FMCSA is uniquely positioned to educate CMV drivers on how to protect their roadways against a crime that poses a threat to transportation safety in every state across the U.S.
In addition to complementing the work our organization is doing to stop human trafficking, the “Your Roads, Their Freedom” campaign works in tandem with the Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking initiative and other federal efforts against human trafficking, such as FMCSA’s grant programs, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Blue Campaign, to build on the important work that is already being done in this space.
