Convenience store clerks across Georgia are being trained to recognize and safely report human trafficking as a part of a program announced today. The Georgia Association of Convenience Stores (GACS) will partner with national advocacy group IN OUR BACKYARD for their Convenience Stores Against Trafficking (CSAT) program.
“Convenience stores serve half the U.S. population every day, and as community hubs, we have the opportunity to be a part of the solution to end human trafficking by learning to recognize the red flags, especially as Atlanta will host the 2019 Super Bowl,” shared Angela Holland, president of GACS.
Joining Holland at the morning press conference at the Capitol were State Representative Chuck Efstration, Director Vernon Keenan of Georgia Bureau of Investigations, Nita Belles, executive director and founder of IN OUR BACKYARD, Mary Frances Bowley, executive director, Wellspring Living, Matt Clements of Savannah-based Enmarket, and Haley Bower of Flowery Branch-based Clipper Petroleum.
