Slavery has long been illegal in the United States, but people are still forced to work and have sex against their will. 

Law enforcement continues to work to crack down on human trafficking, but it's a long haul.  Truckers are keeping their eyes out for people being trafficked; that's the focus of Truckers Against Trafficking

The program comes complete with a training program to make truckers more effective at spotting trafficking.  Kendis Paris from TAT joins us with details.
