Combating Human Trafficking with New TAT Partnership

Combating Human Trafficking with New TAT Partnership

McCarthy Tire Service, a leading provider of tire sales and service, today announced a new partnership with TAT (Truckers Against Trafficking), a national nonprofit dedicated to ending human trafficking.

Through this partnership, McCarthy Tire Service has launched a comprehensive company policy aimed at equipping its teammates to identify and report potential human trafficking situations. Team members will undergo training to learn the signs of human trafficking and the proper protocol for reporting suspected cases to the authorities.

“McCarthy Tire Service is committed to creating a safer community, and that includes combating the heinous crime of human trafficking,” said Amy Cameron, Marketing Director at McCarthy Tire Service. “By partnering with TAT, we can leverage our team’s expertise and our network of 70+ tire shop locations to make a real difference in the fight against this issue.”

The partnership extends beyond internal training. McCarthy Tire Service will also be placing decals on all company vehicles featuring the TAT logo and the National Human Trafficking Hotline number. Additionally, the company will distribute wallet cards and decals to customers, raising awareness about human trafficking and empowering them to report suspicious activity.

“We are grateful that McCarthy Tire Service has committed to joining the fight against human trafficking,” said Esther Goetsch, TAT executive director. “By educating their teammates and customers, McCarthy Tire Service is playing a vital role in disrupting trafficking operations and protecting vulnerable individuals.”
