Can You Help with Rotary "End Sex Trafficking Now” Project?

In Rotary and in Georgia there are new initiatives to reinvigorate efforts to combat the threat of human trafficking - here in Georgia and around the world. Why? There are over 40 million enslaved people, according to Walk Free’s Global Slavery Index. Louise Barden and I recently participated in a local meeting of Rotarians to discuss ways we could work together to combat human trafficking.

  • Rotary International has established a Rotary Action Group Against Slavery (RAGAS) - led by Coordinator Dave McCleary of the Rotary Club of Roswell. You can learn more about what the Rotary Action Group is doing by visiting https://ragas.online/local-groups/the-americas/
  • Georgia’s First Lady Marty Kemp has initiated a project called "Georgians for Refuge, Action, Compassion, and Education” (GRACE), with a commission to combat human trafficking here in Georgia.

RCD has participated in the community “Awareness” Sex Trafficking program and I would like to restart our “Awareness” efforts to communicate to the community. Please let me know if you have interest in helping me to develop and implement an "End Sex Trafficking Now” “Awareness” program. If you are, please contact Charlie Augello at italian@e48stmarket.com.
