Model Replication: Crossing Borders, Modes and Industries
To achieve their mission, organizations must learn to scale sustainably. For Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT), growth this year not only came through existing programs, whether by greater participation of our partners and their empowered employees or the documentation of long-term, impactful outcomes, but it also came through the replication of our model across borders, modes and industries.
Crossing Borders: Guardianes del Asfalto
Consejo Ciudadano, a Mexican NGO dedicated to serving the citi- zens of Mexico through a number of socially responsible programs, most notable of which is running a national crime and human trafficking hotline, launched its Guardianes del Asfalto program on Dec. 5 with a press conference and strategy sessions with companies such as Bridgestone, UPS and Praxair. Guardianes del Asfalto is a replication of TAT’s model of coming alongside private industry to engage them in the fight against human trafficking. It consists of
an online training for members of the Mexican trucking, bus and taxi industries that will include specific red flag indicators for how each of these occupations may encounter a victim. In addition to its partnership with TAT, Consejo partners with the United States National Human Trafficking Hotline. For more than a year, TAT has been consulting with Consejo Ciudadano, as well as facilitating the introductions to and initial training implementation for major U.S. companies with Mexico-based operations. As part of our col- laboration with Consejo Ciudadano, we also worked with a group of students from Brigham Young University to provide an in-depth analysis of the Mexican trucking industry to assist in creating inroads.
Kylla Lanier, TAT deputy director, and Luis Wertman Zaslav, president of Consejo Ciudadano, respond to reporters at the press conference in Mexico for the launch of Guardianes del Asfalto.
