NACS and more than 100 contributing groups are participating in the 2021 National Outreach Survey for Transportation (NOST) led by United Against Slavery—including 59 oversight agencies from Canada, Brazil, the Netherlands and the United States. The project will analyze front-line data from experts in all modes of transportation to craft policies and solutions to disrupt human trafficking and ultimately make it difficult, unattractive and unprofitable.
“Convenience stores have taken an exceptional leadership role in helping to address human trafficking in their neighborhoods. This survey will add valuable data from all areas of transportation to build programs that support the work already being done,” said NACS Vice President of Strategic Industry Initiatives Jeff Lenard.
A custom survey link has been developed for convenience retailers. Responses are needed from frontline staff, store managers and supervisors, to corporate human resources, training staff and leadership. All survey submissions are confidential, and the data will be anonymized prior to being exported for analysis. The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete at www.unitedagainstslavery.org/2021nost/nacs.
