Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign

TLAHT Awareness Posters

Every year, millions of men, women, and children are held against their will and trafficked into forced labor and commercial sex.  Human traffickers exploit roadways, railways, waterways, and airways in urban, rural, and Tribal communities across the United States to recruit and transport their victims.  DOT's Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking (TLAHT) Awareness Campaign aims to educate and empower travelers and employees across all modes of transportation to recognize and report suspected instances of human trafficking.  

DOT's "Combating Human Trafficking in the Transportation Sector Awareness Training" for transportation personnel underscores the intersection of human trafficking and transportation, provides general and transport-specific indicators of human trafficking, and how to report a tip.

Posters and graphics are tailored for use in airplanes and airports, buses and bus stations, trains and rail stations, rest areas and travel centers, ports, and other places where human trafficking may occur.
