ASAP Express and Logistics Continues to Fight against Human Trafficking
Around the world, it is estimated that there are over 40 million individuals enslaved in trafficking schemes today. Human trafficking has been reported in all 50 states, and the number of victims in the United States is estimated in the hundreds of thousands.
They are the prostituted people on the street, in private homes, and in legitimate businesses such as restaurants, truck stops, and motels. This puts the trucking industry in a unique position to recognize and report suspicious activity to help save lives and rescue the victims from these horrible crimes.
For the month of July, we donated $5 per load to OUR Daughters International; an organization that exists to bring an end to human trafficking, and to bring our daughters into safety. Their holistic approach enables rescued victims of trafficking to be restored as daughters and developed as leaders impacting their communities for today and tomorrow.
ASAP Express and Logistics is committed to contributing to the fight and leading by example. Our total funds raised this year through December 13, 2022 is $87,466. Proceeds go to Truckers Against Trafficking, HOPE Against Trafficking and Our Daughters, and Thistle Farms.
For every load you entrust to ASAP to transport, you will be joining in the fight for this cause.
