CHEYENNE, WYOMING – Visitors to Cheyenne Frontier Days will be able to visit the traveling Truckers Against Trafficking Freedom Drivers display at Frontier Park on Wednesday, July 25th and Thursday, July 26th. This exhibit is housed in a semi-truck that contains educational and interactive displays about human trafficking. This mobile educational vehicle has been popular as it crosses the country. It will be in Cheyenne for only these two days.
For the last 9 years, the group Truckers Against Trafficking has been deeply involved in teaching truckers and other trucking industry professions about how to identify and deal with human trafficking issues. Truckers Against Trafficking’s efforts have resulted in numerous convictions for trafficking and release of many trafficked persons across the country.
The exhibit is being sponsored by the Zonta Club of Cheyenne. “For the past several years, our local Zonta Club has been active in the fight against human trafficking – especially sex trafficking – during the Cheyenne Frontier Days celebration. This year we are lucky to be able to collaborate with Truckers Against Trafficking and have them bring their amazing display to Cheyenne for two days,” stated Misti Fisher, Zonta’s Anti-Human Trafficking Project Coordinator. “The Freedom Drivers’ semi-trailer is a premier educational tool in our fight against the sickening crime of human trafficking and we are proud to host it at the country’s premier rodeo.”
The public is encouraged to stop by the Truckers Against Trafficking display while they are at Frontier Park. There is no charge to tour it. Cheyenne Zonta members will also be present to answer questions and share information about how to stop human trafficking in our community.
