You are invited to participate in the “Combating Human Trafficking in Transportation” virtual event hosted by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) on
December 8, 2020 from 2:00pm-4:00pm.
Nearly 25 million people across the globe are victims of modern slavery, and human traffickers utilize America’s roadways, railways, airways, and waterways to facilitate the trafficking of their victims. Transportation leaders have an opportunity to amplify counter-trafficking efforts to combat this heinous crime.
This virtual event will feature remarks by Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao and highlight counter-trafficking initiatives across the transportation sector through leadership, funding, partnerships, policies and protocols, training and awareness, data and information-sharing, and victim and survivor support. Three panels comprised of multimodal Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking stakeholders will spotlight efforts by State and local entities, the private sector, and non-governmental organizations.
In addition to participating on December 8th, public and private stakeholders across all modes of transportation are invited to join DOT’s Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking initiative by signing the pledge to combat human trafficking in the transportation sector. The pledge and other information are available at
