Fareway is the latest company to join a statewide coalition to end human trafficking in Iowa.
The Iowa Businesses Against Trafficking initiative is led by Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate. Fareway is working with Secretary Pate’s office to find ways to prevent human trafficking and raise awareness about this form of modern-day slavery.
Nearly six hundred businesses and organizations have joined the initiative since it launched in January. Businesses are asked to complete two tasks each year – “Learn Something,” and “Do Something.” Businesses will commit to “Learn Something” by educating employees, customers, and industry partners on the signs and impact of human trafficking in Iowa. Businesses can “Do Something” by empowering more people to take action to prevent human trafficking in Iowa.
Any business or nonprofit organization that operates in Iowa is welcome to participate.
