Retraction of Incorrect Statistic

In the August/September 2011 issue of Landline Magazine, an article entitled Voice for the Lost was published about Truckers Against Trafficking. An erroneous statistic was used. Here is the quote, “Since TAT was formed in 2009, more than 125 truck drivers in 30 states have called the national hotline number, resulting in the rescue of more than 100 human trafficking victims, including many underage teens.” We would like to state for the record that this is untrue. 125 truckers from over 30 states have called in tips to the national hotline about potential human trafficking, which is wonderful. We just want to be clear, that 100 victims have not been rescued as a result of those particular calls.
