Groups visit stores to talk about human trafficking and ask owners to post Freedom Stickers and use CSAT training for their employees.

This grassroots canvassing effort is critical to our goal of engaging all of the nearly 155,000 convenience stores in the country. Single-store operators represent 63% of all convenience stores in the nation which means that we need to mobilize an army of volunteers to reach out to these community-based stores.

Partnership Requirements:

A lead/point person for your group who will complete the following:

 Volunteer application • Phone interview • Train volunteers with IOB presentation • Track stores • Return unused materials to CSAT
