Convenience Store Program
Convenience Stores Against Trafficking (CSAT) empowers the convenience store industry to take a stand against the atrocity of human trafficking in America. CSAT provides training, victim outreach and public awareness of human trafficking through convenience stores.Human trafficking happens 365 days a year in every city and town in America. No community is immune. Traffickers not only exploit people, they also exploit locations. Longer hours of operation, public restrooms and involvement in the daily lives of their customers, increase the likelihood that convenience stores can help victims of human trafficking.
