The I-94 Campaign is designed to create heightened awareness of human trafficking during the peak summer travel season. The focus will be along the I-94 corridor in southeastern Wisconsin from the border of Illinois to south of Milwaukee. I-94 is known as a circuit used by traffickers to transport victims from Chicago to Milwaukee, Madison, Eau Claire, Minneapolis, the North Dakota oil fields and many stops in between. As a result, truck stops, rest stops, and hotels have become common places that victims frequent. Education is the number one way to stop trafficking. The goal is to give both the public and the victims the tools needed to get help and prevent further victimization.
