An American initiative called, Truckers Against Trafficking and its Freedom Drivers mobile unit made the trek from North Carolina to Shawanaga First Nation in Ont., over the weekend.

The unit, set up in the back of a trailer, is a walk-through media exhibit with actual stories of victims of human trafficking from across the United States. It aims to educate truckers on what to watch while on busy highways.

Project director Brandy Belton said there are red flags out there for people to watch for.

“You might be in a rest area or truck stop and you happen to see, you know, young children being unloaded out of a vehicle that are walking through a parking lot, knocking on windows or doors, or someone who looks like they may be malnourished or, you know, abused,” she said.

It’s the first time the exhibit has come to Canada.
