2021 National Outreach Survey for Transportation Team
Under the 2020 USDOT Combatting Human Trafficking in Transportation Impact Award
The NOST survey launch is July 5, 2021, during the month of July, highlighting World Day Against Trafficking in Persons.
Our data collection is unique in that we are focused on the survey respondent's experiences, knowledge, perceived challenges, and recommendations of counter-trafficking efforts in their frontline work across industry.
Our Collaborative Research Model for this study includes 5 groups:
1) Senior Research Team (Quick Access)
2) Survivor Leader Advisory Council (Quick Access)
3) Transportation Institutes/Centers and Universities (Quick Access)
4) Oversight Agencies (Quick Access)
5) Working Groups (Quick Access)
Each approved team member may be recognized for their participation in this study.
Why do we take the time to identify each Contributor to our National Outreach Survey studies? Because every contribution is important and far too many times, hard work and contributions are not always acknowledged in anti-trafficking work.
We are thankful to all of our Contributors! We are stronger when we work together!
Senior Research Team
Survivor Leader Advisory Council
We are committed to including a diverse population of Survivor Leaders that are lived experience experts who have been exploited through sex and/or labor trafficking. It is important for our Advisory Council to reflect the vulnerable and marginalized populations that are targeted by human traffickers. Our Advisory Council transcends across different races, religions, genders/identities, nationalities, disabilities, and Indigenous populations.

We would like to extend our appreciation to the following agencies, associations, organizations, and entities that have been approved to participate as an Oversight Agency (OA). Each OA will distribute a custom NOS for Transportation survey link to their employees/members. To those who are publicly recognized and to those who wish to remain anonymous, we thank you for engaging your employees/members in the NOS for Transportation. Are you interested in becoming an OA?
Click Here to download our Oversight Agency Overview. We will continue adding OA's once their participation is confirmed. For any OA that requests anonymity, we appreciate your participation among your employees/members.
Please note: In addition to UAS making the anonymized data available in a final report and on an open-source platform, each approved Oversight Agency will also receive an internal report of the anonymized data collected through their custom survey link. This internal report will allow each OA to reflect and inform their own counter-trafficking endeavors; however, only approved OA's will receive this internal report.
